Vehicle carrying 3 teens crashes into tree in Miramar

Three teenagers were in a vehicle Tuesday morning that crashed into a tree in Miramar, authorities said.

Miramar Fire Rescue Lt. Jose Gregorisch said the vehicle ran off the road shortly before 10 a.m. and struck a tree in the area of Southwest 160th Avenue and 48th Court.

Authorities said all of the male teens were airlifted to Memorial Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Gregorisch said the driver of the vehicle was trapped in the car before authorities arrived and firefighters had to remove the door to get him out. 


"Whenever we see a vehicle versus a tree, we know there's going to be a lot of injuries and it's just the way it tends to happen, unfortunately," Gregorisch said. 

The teens ranged in age from 17 to 19 years old, officials said.

Bass Creek Road was closed between Dykes Road and Southwest 172nd Avenue after the crash.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
