MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Authorities are investigating a fatal crash that occurred on Krome Avenue Thursday morning and involved a white SUV and a golf cart.
The crash was reported around 3 am near Southwest 157th Street.
The golf cart was left completely crushed after colliding with the SUV.
The remnants were later removed from the scene, and the SUV was also towed away.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a woman driving a white Mercedes-Benz SUV was heading south on Krome Avenue toward Southwest 158th Street.
Authorities said a man driving a golf cart was trying to cross the road and was hit by the Mercedes.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities said the SUV flipped and the woman who was driving was ejected from the vehicle. She was airlifted to Jackson South Medical Center with serious injuries, but she is expected to recover.
Krome Avenue was shut down in both directions for about five hours following the accident, which led to major backups on the busy roadway.
All lanes have since reopened.
