According to the author of the article, “A day after a horrific crash in Miami that killed one person, seven others remain hospitalized as they continue to recover. 7Skyforce flew over the scene at around 12:45 p.m., Wednesday, where one vehicle could be seen flipped on its side. ‘As they were coming east on Northwest Seventh Street, there was another vehicle, this black vehicle right here, was making a left onto 35th Avenue,’ said Miami Police Lt. Freddie Cruz. ‘That’s when the collision occurred.’ Several Miami Fire Rescue vehicles responded to the scene. Rescue crews confirmed eight people in total were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital. ‘We ended up transporting eight people to the hospital, making this a level one mass casualty incident,’ said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll. ‘I just saw two cars crash and our quick instinct was to go help the students, I mean, our friends, obviously,’ said student Sinai Rodriguez. Two of those transported, included an elderly couple who were transported as a trauma alert. The elderly male, who was driving a black Nissan, died at the hospital. ‘This is breathtaking because like I tell you, it could be one of your friends, one of your family members, your father, your brother, whoever,’ said Jose Sanchez, a witness.”
