A two-vehicle accident left a male driver dead Saturday after that vehicle hit a tree on Sunset Drive near Southwest 140th Avenue, police said.
A blue Jetta was traveling at a high speed westbound on Sunset Drive when it hit a black Hyundai also going westbound, causing the second vehicle to spin out of control and crash into the tree, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.
“I heard a bang, I heard the screeching, I heard another bang and then it hit the tree. So it was two bangs and then the tree,” witness Mark Nagy said.
The man driving the Hyundai was killed on the scene.
“I knew as soon as I saw him – his eyes were wide open and he was deceased right away,” Nagy said.
The female driver of the Jetta remained on the scene, spoke with investigators and was treated for minor injuries, according to police.
That driver may have hit a white or gray minivan in the area of Southwest 147th Avenue and Southwest 72nd Street before the accident, Zabaleta said.
Zabaleta urged the owner of the minivan and anyone with information on the case to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
