Late Monday evening two women were killed and six others injured when two vehicles collided in Margate. Margate Police Detective Lori Eller stated that the crash occurred around 9 p.m. on the 2600 block of Rock Island Road at Holiday Springs Boulevard. The two deceased women were in a white Toyota Corolla traveling on Rock Island Road. The driver, who has not yet been identified, was attempting to make a left turn onto Holiday Springs Boulevard.
At the same time, a van was travelling south on Rock Island Road. The Corolla turned left in front of the van, unable to complete the turn before the van slammed into the car. Two of the women in the car were pronounced dead at the scene, while the two other occupants of that vehicle were critically injured. The four individuals in the van also suffered varying injuries. Division Chief Dan Booker stated that all six injured vehicle occupants were freed from the wrecked vehicles by first responders before they were transported to local hospitals. The two deceased remained at the crash scene during the early stages of the investigation. Anyone with any information about the crash is encouraged to contact Traffic Homicide Investigator Erin Young.
