No. 2 - A gruesome car crash that took place Saturday evening left a mother of two dead and shut down access on and off the island of Key Biscayne for about eight hours while police investigated the scene.

Jessica Fuentes was leaving work around 8 p.m. via Rickenbacker Causeway on Saturday night when she rear-ended the car in front of her and impaled the driver, Paula Curra Rafetti. Fuentes was given a $75,000 bond with house arrest and a no drive order.

No. 3 - A number of commission and council seats are up for grabs, one mayor will be chosen and nearly a dozen issues will be voted on Tuesday when residents in several South Florida cities head to the polls for election day.

In Miami Beach, three commission seats will be decided, including a heated race in Group 4 that pits political rivals Kristen Rosen Gonzalez and Rafael A. Velasquez against each other in a four-person election. In addition to the commission seats, six different ballot initiatives will be decided by Miami Beach voters.

No. 4 - Getting around the hustle and bustle of Brickell can be challenging. But for Natalie Brabner, Uber's Jump scooters have made life a little easier. But that changed on October 18 when Natalie said she hopped on a scooter right by work, rode it home and tried to end the ride.
