A1A remains one of the deadliest stretches of road in South Florida. On Wednesday night, two motorists were injured and one died in two separate crashes along A1A. In the first accident, an elderly couple was walking down South Ocean Drive around 6:30 p.m. As they attempted to cross the exit driveway of the Westin Diplomat Hotel, they were struck by a shuttle bus. The Chaputs were transported to a local hospital, where husband Lucein died and where wife Fernanda remains in critical condition. The driver of the bus, Alex Garcia, has not been charged, but Hollywood Police are still investigating the accident.
In a separate accident, cyclist William Wiener was riding his bicycle down Ocean Drive as well when he was struck by a car. The driver of the card fled the scene. Wiener was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital, where is suffering serious injuries. Police are looking for leads into this accident.
