Flavia Pinto Killed, Three Others Hospitalized After Crash On I-75 Near Weston
A wrong-way car crash along I-75 in the western part of Broward County has claimed the life of one driver, Flavia Pinto, and sent three other people to a hospital in Broward County.
Florida Highway Patrol officials and Broward County police authorities say the crash occurred in the northbound lanes near Weston just east of US 27.
Florida Highway Patrol officials say a 23-year-old, Flavia Pinto of Pembroke Pines, was driving a 2017 Honda in the wrong lanes when she struck a 2018 Nissan Frontier occupied by a couple, Diaz and Cleo, from the Tampa area.
After the initial collision, Pinto’s vehicle later hit a 2007 Toyota driven by 45-year old from Naples. Pinto died at the scene while the couple in the Nissan were taken to Broward General Hospital with serious injuries. Diaz was taken to Cleveland Clinic hospital with minor injuries, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Florida highway patrol officials and police authorities would not confirm if alcohol or drugs played a major role in the crash. Drivers were advised to avoid the area as crews continue their investigation and cleanup of the scene with the roadway reopening shortly.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in several serious injuries.
