Driver's condition not immediately released

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. – One person was airlifted to a hospital Tuesday afternoon after a car crashed into a concrete fence that separates two homes in Opa-locka, authorities said.

The crash was reported just before 4 p.m. at 10426 NW 32nd Ave.

Local 10 News reporter Christian De La Rosa was at the scene a short time later and said it appeared the blue Chevrolet sedan first crashed into a fire hydrant before taking out the concrete fence. It also appeared to have struck a parked SUV.  

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said the injured driver was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. 

No other details were immediately released.
