MIAMI (CBSMiami) – An early morning crash in northwest Miami-Dade left one person dead and shut down part of Milam Dairy Road on Friday.
Two cars headed southbound on Northwest 72nd Avenue at Northwest 60th Street crashed around 6 a.m., according to Miami-Dade Police. Detectives said it appeared the cars clipped each other before slamming into a pole and fence outside a warehouse.
One person, a 47-year-old man, was killed when his car overturned and he was ejected. Detectives told CBS4 the man wasn’t wearing his seatbelt.
A 42-year-old man in the second car walked away from the crash unhurt.
“We can’t stress it enough. Wear seatbelts. Speed kills, seatbelts can save lives,” said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta with the Miami-Dade Police Department.
