Multi-Vehicle Crash In NW Miami Injures At Least Three People

This last year has been especially tragic for our community, as well as for communities across the country and around the world, leading to more funerals than ever before. The sadness we feel when we lose a loved one is great indeed. But imagine that pain of mourning being exacerbated by an additional tragedy taking place during the funeral!

This is exactly what happened on Monday in the Northwest Miami-Dade area. Vehicles were leaving a funeral when an accident occurred, injuring multiple people, according to this CBS Local Report.

The accident happened at around 3 p.m. near NW 17 Avenue and 79th Street. Cars that were part of a funeral caravan were involved in the crash when they were struck by another vehicle. As a domino-effect took place, several cars were involved in the accident.

People in the funeral caravan left their cars to render assistance. Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived promptly to offer help, as well.

Three people involved had severe injuries and had to be rushed to the hospital, while several others had minor injuries from the accident.

This event was meant to be a time of mourning and closure for the friends and family of the deceased. This new tragedy interrupted the procession, causing new heartache for those that were already grieving.
