Violent crash in Pompano Beach kills woman on rollerblades, splits car in half

2 people inside vehicle ejected, listed in critical condition

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A woman was killed in a Pompano Beach crash that left a car split in half.

It happened just after 5 p.m. Wednesday near the Pompano Beach Air Park.

A witness told Local 10 News he saw the car involved speed right past him on Northeast 10th Street.

He said the car went into the middle lane or turning lane to pass him, then tried to get back into the proper lane to avoid a head-on collision. But the driver, he said, lost control and veered off the road.

“It was going fast, like fast,” he said.

According to Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, a man and a woman inside the vehicle were ejected.

The badly damaged car then careened into the path of a woman on rollerblades, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cellphone video shows a Good Samaritan trying to help the man, who was lying unresponsive on the road.

Authorities are investigating what led to the crash.

The man and women who were ejected were taken to Broward Health North and are listed in critical condition.

Authorities have not yet released the identities of the people involved in the incident.
