A Miami Gardens man died Saturday night in Miramar when his truck smashed into a tree.

Pembroke Pines police believe Arthur Ewing likely was driving too fast down Pembroke Road when his 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck smashed into a tree on the 11300 block around 9:49 p.m.. Despite the CPR efforts of Miramar police officers, Ewing died at Hollywood Memorial Regional Hospital.

Next month would have been the 37th wedding anniversary of Ewing, 61, and Hilda Williams-Ewing. In a Facebook post, Ewing’s sister said he was his church’s choir director.
