A Lauderhill man is dead after a Saturday morning crash in North Lauderdale.
At approximately 2:20 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, Broward Regional Communications received a call regarding a crash involving two vehicles in the 5300 block of North State Road 7 in North Lauderdale. Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded, and the preliminary investigation reveals that a 1994 GMC Safari van, driven by Dwayne Toomer, was traveling northbound on North State Road 7 when he entered the designated left turn lane at Lakeside Drive. As Toomer made a turn, he entered into the path of a 2016 Mercedes driven by Sheldon Milwood, who was traveling southbound on North State Road 7. The Mercedes struck the GMC Safari in a T-bone style collision.
Destiny Ross, a passenger in Toomer’s van, was ejected from the vehicle. North Lauderdale Fire Rescue and Tamarac Fire Rescue responded to the crash scene and transported all three people involved in the crash to an area hospital. Toomer was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
