Three Dead as Car Careens into Lake Alongside I-95

fl-fatal-suv-water-crash-folo-20130103-001.jpeg A three-car collision on Wednesday night left three dead and one in critical condition. Around 10:00 p.m., a Lexus SUV and its four passengers careened through a fence and drove into a roadside lake off of I-95. The driver, Nadege Theodore and sixteen-year-old Guivens Daverman were pulled from the water and transported to local hospitals, where they both later died. One survivor, twenty-year-old Sandalie Jean-Baptiste is currently on life support at Broward Health North. In the dark of night, rescuers were unable to find the fourth passenger. When they returned in the morning light, they were able to find the fifteen-year-old girl’s body in the lake and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The passengers were on their way home from the Town Center at Boca Raton mall when they collided with a Hyundai Sonata and a Nissan Altima. Neither of the other cars suffered major damage. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

This part of I-95 has been problematic and rescuers have had difficulties locating victims in the past. In July, it took rescuers three days to local a crash victim in a canal that runs parallel to the northbound lanes of I-95. The vehicle, which had veered off the road, drove through a chain-link fence and crashed into the water. The driver was taken to the hospital and told rescuers that there had been a passenger in his car, but the passenger was not located until three days later, when he was found about 200 feet south of the crash site.
