Man dies in Florida Turnpike crash in Deerfield Beach

The Florida Highway Patrol troopers re-opened the Florida Turnpike’s northbound lanes at Sample Road after a fatal crash caused a closure Saturday morning. 

FHP Sgt. John Baker said the driver of a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck collided with a black Ford Mustang about 6:30 a.m., while attempting to enter the Turnpike. 

“As he did so, he lost control, and as he lost control he crossed three lanes of traffic,” Baker said. 

The Ford Mustang was approaching northbound when it struck the pickup truck’s passenger side door “causing extensive intrusion into the actual truck,” Baker said. 

Firefighters found the driver of the truck was dead. A woman who was in the Mustang was injured.

1-year-old boy struck by SUV in Deerfield Beach dies

A boy who was struck by a sport utility vehicle Sunday afternoon in Deerfield Beach has died, his grandmother told Local 10 News.

Caroline Chery said Monday that her 1-year-old grandson, Neallie Saxon Jr. III, died at Broward Health Medical Center.

Chery said her grandson wandered into the street outside her home on Northwest Fourth Place while her family prepared to celebrate her 10-year-old grandson’s birthday.

“I asked my son to come out here and help his sister get some of the stuff to have at the party so that we can get back to church,” Chery said.

However, Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said witnesses told detectives that the children “often played outside without adult supervision, as they were on this occasion.”

Family members and witnesses said the driver didn’t stop after she struck the boy with her SUV.

As some family members performed CPR on Neallie, others chased after the driver, catching up to the SUV at the end of the block.

“They beat her unmercifully,” witness Anthony Clay said.

The driver was also taken to a hospital to be treated for her injuries. Her name hasn’t been released.

“She would have left,” Chery said of the driver. “She had no intentions of stopping.”

Carter said the boy was shorter than the vehicle’s bumper, and detectives believe it is unlikely that he would have been visible from the driver’s perspective.

BSO detectives are investigating the crash.
