Two Teenagers Die In A Roll-Over Crash At A Rock Island Road Intersection

A two-vehicle crash involving a carload of teens and a pickup truck in Tamarac last month has left two people dead. Authorities are still investigating the crash.

CBS Local in Miami reported on the station’s website that the fatal crash happened at the intersection of Rock Island Road and Commercial Boulevard at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 28th.

According to a statement issued by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, a Toyota Corolla was T-Boned by a Ford pickup truck. The Corolla was being driven by a 14-year-old girl who had three other teenagers as passengers. The force of the impact on the passenger side of the smaller vehicle caused it to roll over. The crash was fatal.

Firefighters and paramedics arrived at the scene of the crash and pronounced two of the four teens inside the Toyota dead at the scene.  The victims have been identified as 16-year-old Marjorie Petit-Frere and 13-year-old Valerie Petit-Frere. The two girls’ relationship was not immediately known at the time of the report.

Authorities say that the 14-year-old female driver and a 16-year-old boy who was a passenger in the Corolla were taken to Broward Health Medical Center. Their identity and current condition were not released.

The driver of the pickup truck, 68-year-old Roosevelt Nelson was uninjured in the crash.

Broward County Sheriff’s investigators are not sure which vehicle had the right of way at the time of the fatal crash. So far, no charges or citations have been filed in connection with the crash.
