Towards the end of last month, a fatal accident in Pembroke Pines took the lives of two people and injured several others when a semi-truck pulled out in front of a Mitsubishi, causing a chain-reaction accident. According to one local news source, the accident occurred a bit before midnight in the southbound lanes of Interstate 75.
Evidently, a semi-truck loaded with a concrete barrier was pulling out of a construction site and onto the highway when it was hit by the Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi slid under the truck, ripping off the roof of the car. After the initial collision, a BMW crashed into the back of the disabled semi-truck, causing part of the truck’s load to come free. As the barrier slid off the truck, it landed on top of the BMW.
Another semi-truck was the fourth vehicle to become involved in the accident, when it was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with the concrete barrier that had fallen from the truck.
