Upon their arrival at the site of the wreck, located on Interstate 95 in Oakland Park, they found that four vehicles had been involved in a collision.
The accident occurred when a vehicle, driven by a 24-year-old Fort Lauderdale resident, was stopped on the highway. As two other vehicles approached the stopped vehicle, they slowed down. Another motorist approaching the vehicles switched into the same lane as the stopped vehicles and rear-ended one of the cars, causing a four-vehicle accident.
As a result of the collision, a 75-year-old man from Aventura, was pronounced deceased at the scene. His name has not been released at this time.
