Auto Accident VIctimAs a driver, keeping your eyes and ears open is essential to staying safe. Protecting yourself from possible threats with an experienced legal team is just as important. Consider a recent article for WSVN titled “1 dead, 5 injured in fiery crash in SW Miami-Dade.”

The author of the article writes, “One person was killed and five others were taken to the hospital after, police said, an SUV slammed against a car in Southwest Miami-Dade, early Sunday. According to Miami-Dade Police, the fiery collision took place at the intersection of Southwest 144th Street and 157th Avenue, at around 4:45 a.m. They said a Toyota Corolla was traveling southbound on 157th Avenue and was attempting to make a left turn onto 144th Street when it crashed into a GMC Yukon. Investigators said the impact caused the Yukon to roll on its side and both vehicles to burst into flames.”

NBC Miami also explores this accident in a recent article titled “1 Killed, 5 Injured in Fiery Crash in SW Miami-Dade.” Matthew Perez of NBC Miami writes, “Miami-Dade Police are investigating a car crash that left one person dead and five others injured early Sunday.
