Two people died in fatal crashes between midnight and dawn Monday, one crash shutting down a north-south artery as the morning rush hour began.
In the later crash, Miami police said one person was killed on Northwest Seventh Avenue when a northbound Kia and a southbound BMW smashed grills at Northwest 77th Street just after 6 a.m. That shut down Northwest Seventh Avenue, which runs parallel to Interstate 95 from the Golden Glades Interchange into downtown.
The first crash, on Killian Parkway and Southwest 98th Avenue, killed a female passenger after her car “became fully engulfed in flames,” according to Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Alex Camacho. Her car struck a tree in the median around 1:29 a.m.
She was 17, Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reports.
