A man and woman were killed in a violent overnight crash in Plantation, officials said.
Officials with Plantation Fire Rescue say a witness who was on his way into work around 3 a.m. Thursday spotted the accident scene at Pine Island Road and Peters Road and immediately called 911.
According to an initial investigation, officials say a man and a woman were headed north on Pine Island Road in a truck when they hit a pole and lost control of the truck. Both victims were ejected from the vehicle.
Plantation Fire believe a white vehicle also may have run over the man's body.
The woman died at the scene, while the man died as he was being transported to the hospital. It is not known which individual was driving at the time of the accident.
The victims were later identified as 31-year-old Patrick Michael Kallman and 37-year-old Jennifer Catherine Jacon. Friends said Kallman and Jacon were a couple, and Kallman was the son of a Broward Sheriff's Office sergeant.
"Our hearts are heavy as we extend our sincere condolences and prayers to Sgt. Michael Kallman, a 27-year veteran of our agency, whose son died today," the BSO said in a statement. "Patrick Michael Kallman was involved in a vehicle crash early Thursday morning that also took the life of his girlfriend, Jennifer Catherine Jacon."
It is not yet known whether alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.
Firefighters shut down Pine Island Road from Southwest Sixth Street to Peters Road. The intersection was closed for some time.
"It's a shock, it's very sad coming out here and seeing this," friend Rob Fenwick said.
Police are looking for a white vehicle possibly with driver-side damage and possible side-view mirror damages in connection with the crash.
