Kevin Livingston, 42, and his wife, Michelle, 35, died in a fatal car crash on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017 after their car’s left rear tire split, sending them into a canal on Interstate 75 in West Broward.

Kevin and Michelle Livingston never saw what killed them Sunday afternoon on an empty West Broward stretch of Interstate 75, according to the Florida Highway Patrol’s account of the crash.

They never saw why their Ford Expedition wound up in a canal.

The tread on the Expedition’s left rear tire split.

According to FHP, Kevin Livingston couldn’t keep control of the Expedition before it careened into the canal.

Kevin, 42, and former Fort Lauderdale resident Michelle, 35, died at mile marker 32 on the northbound side of I-75. The couple, headed home to Tampa, celebrated their eighth anniversary in April.

They became South Florida’s fourth and fifth holiday weekend deaths from a vehicle that crashed into water.
