A car that crashed into a tree on Monday morning resulted in a driver being extricated from their vehicle by the Coral Springs Fire Department.

According to police, around 11:06 a.m., a 28 year-old male was driving westbound in a 2015 white Nissan Versa on Sample Road through Riverside Drive and was clipped when a 35 year-old female who was driving a red 2002 Toyota Corolla made a wide right turn on a red from Riverside Drive to Sample Road overtaking the middle lane. The red Corolla then struck the rear passenger side of the white Nissan causing the Nissan to spin out, jump the curb and strike a tree. 

The male driver of the Nissan Versa had to be extricated from his vehicle said Coral Springs Fire Rescue Division Chief Mike Moser who said they performed a “dash lift” by using extra equipment to help lift the dashboard off of his lower extremities.

The driver was transported to Broward Health North with serious injuries.  The owner of the Corolla was not injured.

    Why wide? When turning on red, usually don’t go wide. And look. Twice. Then again.
