HIALEAH, Fla. - One person was killed and several others were injured late Tuesday in a crash, authorities said.

Lt. Eddie Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Hialeah Police Department, said the crash happened about 9 p.m. at East Fourth Avenue and East 33rd Street. 

Paramedics took multiple people to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. Their conditions were not disclosed.

"I just got word of what happened to my daughter and right now I can't say anything at the moment," one man said outside the hospital. 

Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton said a pregnant woman who was driving a Jeep Wrangler was among the injured.

Both vehicles were badly damaged in the crash.

The roof of the car was ripped apart and shards of glass were scattered on the pavement.

"I went outside and saw the accident," Tony Dominguez said in Spanish. "The street was filled with cops and there was a body covered with a yellow tarp."

According to Dominguez, accidents are common at the intersection. He said the intersection is dangerous because some drivers run the stop sign and don't obey the speed limit.

"There are always accidents here," he said.
