car crashesAuto accidents are a horrifying sight. Recently, a Miami surveillance camera captured one of these incidents. Consider a recent article for CBS Miami titled “Surveillance Shows Moments Before, After Deadly Dade Crash.”

Peter O’Dench of CBS Miami writes, “Three people were killed when two cars collided in northwest Miami-Dade. Striking new surveillance tape shows the horror of the crash. The tape obtained from a nearby business shows that the crash was so severe that shredded car parts were sent flying. The accident happened around 9:40 p.m. Sunday. A Chevrolet Impala was heading north on NW 17th Avenue when it hit a southbound Toyota Corolla making a left turn at NW 119th Street. The surveillance tape shows the Corolla slowing down to a near stop and shows the Impala does not stop and plows into the Corolla. The three passengers in the Toyota, two men and a woman, were killed. Mariza Araujo told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench that one of the dead was her boyfriend 48-year old Ramon Castro and said they had been together for three years and were planning to get married in a few months. ‘We are devastated. I never imagined something like this going to happen last night,’ said Araujo. ‘I lost the man in my life – my husband. I don’t have words to describe what I’m going to do now.’ She said, ‘I lost my soul mate.’ Araujo said the two other people who died were Castro’s nephew, Antonio, and his nephew’s girlfriend Marisela. The driver of the Toyota, 55-year old Paul Manreza, was injured and taken to a nearby hospital. The driver of the Impala, 32-year old Shikeena Hasty, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Police said Hasty has a record and she’s been previously arrested for battery, criminal mischief and possession of marijuana.”
