MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a fatal crash involving two vehicles Monday in northwest Miami-Dade.
The crash occurred around 1:45 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Okeechobee Road near Mile Marker 18, just north of 178th Street.
Video taken at the scene shows what appears to be a red Chevrolet SUV off to the side and several car parts and debris scattered around it.
About 20 feet away was the wreckage of another vehicle, with what looked like a tarp covering up a possible body nearby.
FHP Lt. Alex Camacho later confirmed that the red SUV was traveling south in the northbound lanes of Okeechobee Road and collided head-on into a maroon Dodge sedan.
He said the driver of the SUV, identified only as a Hispanic man, was transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center. He said the other driver, also identified only as a Hispanic man, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers blocked off all northbound lanes along Okeechobee Road following the collision.
