PLANTATION, Fla. – Two people were killed and one was injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash in Plantation, authorities confirmed.

The crash occurred in the 4300 block of West Sunrise Boulevard.

According to authorities, a sedan was making a turn from the eastbound lanes on Sunrise Boulevard, either trying to go north on 43rd Avenue or making a U-turn to go back west on Sunrise.

Police said an SUV that was traveling at a very high rate of speed slammed into the car, killing the two people inside of the smaller vehicle.

Sky 10 was above the scene after the crash and the sedan was literally split in two because of the impact.

Plantation Police Officer Chavez Grant confirmed that one person was transported to a local hospital. His or her condition has not been released.

Eastbound and westbound lanes were closed on Sunrise Boulevard from Northwest 47th Avenue to North State Road 7 after the crash.

The condition of the driver of the SUV has not been released and it’s unclear whether he or she will face charges.
