Police are investigating after a car drove into the path of a Brightline high-speed train early Thursday in Aventura.
Officers arrived at the scene near Southwest 11th Street and S. Dixie Highway after 6 a.m. after the train collided with the car. Surveillance video captured the car going under the gate before impact.
“The gates will be coming down and guys will dip right through them and go about their business,” said Renard Haynes, who witnessed the incident.
The blue vehicle was seen away from the tracks completely destroyed while the train was stopped away from the scene.
