Law enforcement officials are investigating a rollover wreck in Northwest Miami-Dade that resulted in the death of a young woman after a routine traffic stop.
Officials say a stolen black BMW that was involved in a police pursuit was traveling southbound along 71st Street and 22nd Avenue. The vehicle reportedly crossed over train tracks that crossed the road at a high speed causing the driver to lose control. The vehicle then drove onto oncoming traffic and hit another vehicle before striking a pole and a fence. The car rolled over several times in a grassy area and two people were thrown out of the vehicle before it came to a stop.
Police say the accident started with a routine traffic stop on Northwest 79th Street and Sixth Avenue. “Once the officers exited the vehicle and approached the vehicle, the driver put the vehicle in motion,” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Chris Thomas.
Reports say the two people were taken to the Jackson Memorial Hospital where the passenger of the vehicle was later pronounced dead. The driver of the car suffered several injuries and is in stable condition.
Officials say the incident is still under investigation and no further details were released.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “Rear-end accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. Often, when a person is rear-ended they are completely taken off-guard and have not had an opportunity to brace for an impact. Rear-end accidents often lead to serious back and neck injuries. We hope that those involved receive the proper medical care.”
