Miami, FL – One Hurt, Suspect Arrested After Truck Crash in Opa-Locka
Miami, FL (October 6, 2023) – A cross-county pursuit of a truck driver with an allegedly stolen license plate ended in Northwest Miami-Dade with a serious crash on Friday, October 6.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, deputies were following the vehicle, a gray Dodge Ram, in Lauderhill because its tag did not match the vehicle. Deputies continued to follow the truck as it headed toward Miami Gardens and into the area of Opa-locka.
A BSO helicopter continued to follow the truck after officers ended their pursuit.
Witnesses said the truck hit a white sedan before it came to rest on a local property.
The white sedan involved in the crash sustained extensive front-end damage, and EMTs assessed the driver for injuries.
The truck and the sedan involved in the crash were towed from the scene. MDPD officers said the truck driver will face charges for being in a stolen truck, as well as hit-and-run related charges.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families.
