Father dies when son crashes car in Coral Springs

A man died in an accident Sunday night in Coral Springs after his son lost control while driving and flipped the car, according to police.

At about 8:20 p.m., the son was driving north in the 2700 block of University Drive when he struck the median, causing the car to flip over it, said Coral Springs police spokeswoman Sgt. Carla Kmiotek. Authorities pronounced the father, who was in the passenger seat, dead at the scene. Emergency officials took the son to Broward Health North with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators do not believe the crash was alcohol-related, said police spokesman Lt. Joe McHugh. As of Sunday night, the father and son had not been identified by police.
