Car vs semi collision in Pompano Beach claims lives of 2 men

POMPANO BEACH, FL — Two men, aged 51 and 21, lost their lives as a result of a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon at a Pompano Beach intersection, reports CBS12.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) said the accident took place at West Copans Road and Blount Road at about 5:00 p.m.

Investigators found that a 51-year-old Fort Pierce man was behind the wheel of a Nissan Sentra heading westbound on West Copans Road when he tried to turn left onto Blount Road.

Preliminary details indicate the Nissan entered the path of a Mack truck, which was traveling eastbound on West Copans Road toward the intersection. The move caused the front-end of the truck to collide with the Nissan’s passenger side, sending the car across the sidewalk, then onto a grassy area before it came to rest at the intersection’s southeast corner.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue crews pronounced the passenger of the Nissan, a 21-year-old man, deceased at the scene.

The Nissan’s 51-year-old driver was rushed to Broward Health North where he also succumbed to his injuries, confirmed officials.

The sheriff’s office said the driver of the truck stayed at the crash site and cooperated with an investigation, which remains ongoing.
