One man killed, another critically injured in separate I-75 crashes

One man was killed and another man was critically injured Sunday morning in two separate crashes on Interstate 75.

The first accident, which shut the southbound lanes of the highway, happened just after 4:30 a.m.

In the first crash, a driver lost control of his car and crashed into the median on I-75, north of Pines Boulevard, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to FHP, Reymond Berhane, 23, was heading south on I-75 when he hit the median, forcing the car to roll over several times.

Berhane, who was ejected from the car, was airlifted to Hollywood Memorial Regional Hospital.

The second crash happened just after 6:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-75, just south of Miramar Parkway.

In this case, Ludwig Makovy was heading north in the left lane when he veered into the median, according to FHP. He then veered back to the right and cut across all the lanes of traffic.

The left front of Makovy’s car struck Oscar Rojas’ car, as Rojas headed north in the right lane. Both cars ended up on the dirt shoulder. Rojas’ car flipped several times and landed by a garbage container.

Rojas was ejected from the car and taken to Memorial Regional, where he died.
