South Florida Pickup Truck Crash Kills 2 Broward County Teens, Injures Four Others
Two Weston teens are dead from injuries they sustained in a South Florida pickup truck crash on Alligator Alley on Sunday night. 18-year-old Sasha Abitante and 17-year-old Juan Zambrano were passengers in the Dodge truck, which was transporting six teens from Broward County, when the vehicle went onto the unpaved median and overturned as the driver overcorrected the vehicle twice. Some of the passengers were ejected from the truck and onto the road. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 18-year-old Nickolas Wagy, the Weston teen who was driving the truck, was the only one wearing a seat belt. He sustained minor injuries. 18-year-old Fort Lauderdale teens Brian Corbet and Dylan Delgado suffered serious injuries, as did 18-year-old Weston teenager Gabriel Fernandez. The South Florida teens were coming back from a reggae concert near Naples when the traffic crash happened. Single-car collisions can prove just as fatal is fatal as Miami auto accidents involving more than one vehicle or a car and a pedestrian or bicyclist. If you are someone who was injured in a Palm Beach single-car crash, it is a good idea to explore your legal options because there may be other parties who should be held liable.
