Three dead when a driver that was racing other vehicles crashed into an oncoming traffic, according to the police.
The authorities said that the accident happened shortly before 2 in the morning on Flagger Street and 58th Avenue. A Toyota Scion was racing westbound with other two vehicles when the driver lost control and crashed with a Ford Expedition carrying a family of four, said Miami Police spokesman Willie Moreno.
The crash took the life of two people inside the Ford Expedition; the father, 43-year-old Jose Serrano, and son, 15-year-old German Serrano. The mother, 42-year-old Carmen Orta, and second child, 12-year-old Gabriel Serrano, are still in critical condition in the hospital.
Maria Armas, daughter of Serrano and Orta, said that she spoke with her mother 15 minutes before the crash and said to her that they will be home in 15 minutes.
Armas added that her parents had recently reconciled after a separation and everyone was happy but now, they will never get back together with his father gone and little brother gone too.
The crash also took the life of the passenger, 20-year-old Ivan Rodriguez, of the Toyota Scion. He was thrown out of the car and was declared dead on the scene.
Moreno said that the impact of the crash was very massive that it tossed the SUV around and continued to roll around three times more before coming to a stop. Furthermore, the entire engine was dislodged from the vehicle because of the force of the crahs.
The Toyota Scion was going at a very high speed probably reaching 100 mph.
A black Chevrolet Impala is believed by the police to be one of the cars involved but the police are still investigating using footages from local businesses.
The 19-year-old driver, Alejandro Hernandez, of the Toyota Scion is still in critical condition. He, too, was ejected from the vehicle.
Armas hopes that justice will come their way.
