A girl who was trapped under the wreckage of a crash Monday morning at a Miramar intersection has died.

A girl who was ejected from one of the vehicles was trapped under the wreckage and had to be rescued. She was flown to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, where she was later pronounced dead.

The girl’s name hasn’t been released pending notification of next of kin.

An adult was also injured and taken to the hospital.

Roaches spotted crawling on chicken and rice containers in South Florida restaurants

It was a busy week for Inspectors with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

A State Inspector noted a live roach on raw chicken at Nauti Dawg Cafe in Lighthouse Point last week. Twenty-Six violations were found and the kitchen there was ordered shut.

Records show a stop sale was also issued on rice at Fried Rice Kitchen in Pompano Beach after a roach was spotted inside a rice container in a food prep area.

Rodent issues were found at a Burger King in Coral Springs, at Blue Willy’s BBQ on Commercial Boulevard and at Back Alley BBQ in Fort Lauderdale.

Roach issues were found at Bice Bistro on Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove and Wing’s N Things in Pompano Beach.

Notre Dame restaurant in Pompano Beach was ordered shut for the 4th time after bugs were discovered on boiled eggs.

What will South Florida be doing during solar eclipse?

Millions of people across the country, including South Florida, will watch as the moon crosses in front of the sun Monday, briefly turning day into night.

The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Miami is one of the many locations hosting a solar eclipse watch party. Dozens of people stood in line Monday morning waiting for the museum to open. The museum is giving away eclipse glasses with the price of admission.

“I love nature and I think this is an incredible opportunity to see a gift from the universe to us,” Louisa Sztern Robel told Local 10 News.

Monday’s celestial event will be the first time in 38 years that a solar eclipse will be visible from the U.S. It is the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse will pass from coast to coast.

South Florida is expected to receive about 80 percent totality — the peak time at 2:58 p.m.

The eclipse coincides with the first day of school in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Students in Broward County Public Schools are being kept indoors, while Miami-Dade County Public Schools is letting individual schools decide whether children will be allowed outside during the eclipse.

Spectators travel from near, far to South Carolina for solar eclipse

From near and far, they traveled to South Carolina’s state capital for the first solar eclipse in 38 years.

“Pretty stoked about it, yeah,” Bill Bates, who traveled to South Carolina for the eclipse, told Local 10 News. “Hopefully we’ll have clear weather.”

In the coast-to-coast path of totality, Columbia will have the longest total eclipse on the East Coast — a full two-and-a-half minutes of total darkness as the moon moves to blot out the sun at 2:41 p.m.

“(There are) supposed to be a lot of people coming from out of town,” resident Tony Adams said.

He’s right. Hotel rooms in the city have been booked for months. Room rates Sunday night topped more than $1,000 for what is typically known as a budget-minded hotel chain.

The last time a total solar eclipse was visible from the U.S. was in 1979, and then just in the upper northwest. What was then the distant future — 2017 — is here. Much has changed since then, but not the entrepreneurial spirit.

“Business has just been booming,” Chase Martin told Local 10.

The enterprising family at the side of the road said they have sold 1,000 solar filter glasses since Wednesday — at $10 each.

There is seemingly high demand and a short supply for the glasses.

“Do you all have the monopoly on these glasses? Does anyone else still have stock?” Local 10 News reporter Glenna Milberg asked.

“They just don’t have any left,” Will Lorick answered. “We do.”

The Great American Eclipse, as it’s called, is inspiring a country with science, spirituality and maybe inspiring future astrophysicists.

Andrea Doneheu, who was traveling with her 3-year-old granddaughter to see the eclipse, sure hopes so.

“Maybe a beginning of some science love in her,” Doneheu said.
