1 dead after fatal crash shuts down stretch of Kendall Drive for hours

A section of Kendall Drive has reopened hours after a deadly car crash shut it down.

Two gray sedans crashed Tuesday morning at the intersection of Southwest 88th Street and 142nd Avenue, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The westbound lanes were closed during the investigation.

One of the cars came to a final rest at an apartment complex parking lot near the intersection, said FHP spokesman Lt. Alejandro Camacho.

A man died at the crash scene, he said.

Two people were taken as trauma alerts to a nearby hospital, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

A picture shared by troopers on Twitter shows a car with heavy front-end damage next to the sidewalk, debris scattered across the street.
