Kendall, Florida Collision Sends Four to the Hospital

A Kendall, Florida car accident sent four people to the hospital on Sunday, news sources report. Two vehicles apparently crashed at an intersection, sending the victims to the hospital with a variety of injuries. Information regarding the victims’ identities was not immediately available following the crash. Police are currently conducting an investigation to determine what caused the accident; so far, no charges have been filed. It is unclear whether any of the victims will file for damages.

According to reports, the accident occurred at the intersection of Southwest 134th Avenue and Southwest 104th Street in Kendall. The small suburban intersection is controlled by two stop signs on either entrance of Southwest 104th Street.

At around 11:00 Sunday evening, two vehicles crashed at the intersection; the details of the accident are not yet publicly known. The force of the collision sent one of the cars barreling into a light pole and a fence, reports say. Sources were unable to say which car was on which road prior to the accident. It is also unclear how many people were in each car or whether the victims were wearing seat belts.

Two victims remained stuck in a vehicle following the accident, reports indicate. “We did have two patients that were heavily trapped,” a fire rescue spokesperson said. “[Those] two patients required some extensive extrication.” Three victims were rushed to the Kendall Regional Medical Center, while a fourth was taken to Baptist Hospital.

Reports say the victims’ injuries were considered serious or critical, and it is not yet known how the victims are faring. “We did have some serious injuries,” a fire rescue spokesperson told reporters. An investigation will determine whether either driver was at fault for the crash.

Unfortunately, this was not the only car accident to occur in the area recently. David Cadet of Lauderhill was killed when his veered off the road and into a tree on Sunday, sources say. Cadet, 31, died at the scene. The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating and has not yet determined what conditions led to the fatal crash. No one else was injured in the incident.

Sources say the accident occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Boca Raton. Cadet was not wearing his seatbelt when he lost control of his 2000 Pontiac Grand Am, veered off the road, and collided with two trees, reports say. The force of the collision ejected Cadet from his vehicle and threw him onto the side of the road. The FHP says Cadet was pronounced dead at the scene. The northbound lanes near Palmetto Park Road were closed following the accident while the FHP investigated and cleared the scene of debris.

An investigation into the accident revealed that Cadet had not been under the influence of alcohol or drugs, nor had he been speeding at the time of the crash. The FHP also determined that Cadet’s vehicle had been operating normally prior to the incident and that the weather outside was clear. It is currently unknown what led to the crash.
