Taxi driver killed, passengers injured in crash with pickup in Dania Beach


A cab driver was killed early Monday and two of his passengers were injured in the crash with a pickup in Dania Beach.

Taxi Frantz Joseph, 53, of North Miami was killed on impact at the crash at U.S. 1 at Sheridan Street, which was shut down for hours while the crash was being investigated and cleared.

The crash happened about 3:30 a.m. as Joseph was heading south on U.S. 1 and collided with the pickup traveling west on Sheridan.

After the crash, the pickup flipped in the middle of the street and the taxi landed lopsided in bushes ringing a gas station.

“They are lucky to be alive,” Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion told reporters, referring to the survivors.

The injured were identified as taxi passengers: Jessica Johnson, 20, of Eustis. Fl., and Jesse Johnson, 22, of Pompano Beach.

Two people in the pickup also were injured: They were identified as Sheena Rogers, 28, of Miami and Emmanuel Bruce, 37, of Cutler Bay.
