Woman dies after car goes from highway to water

Nicole Lund, 24, was killed early Wednesday after her car crashed off the ramp from northbound Interstate 75 to westbound Miramar Parkway, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The Palm Beach Gardens resident’s 2014 Honda Accord failed to hold the massive, sweeping curve and crashed down the embankment into the water. Miramar Fire Rescue took the woman to Memorial West Hospital in Pembroke Pines, where she was pronounced dead.

A Broward County source said Lund used her cellphone to call fire rescue and her family as she realized she would need help escaping the car.
