An accident on Sunday night in Coral Springs caused the death of a father and the hospitalization of his son.
At 8:20 p.m. on Sunday, a 1998 Toyota Camry driven by Guillermo Gomez, 40 years old, was heading northbound on the 2700 block University Drive when he lost control and then struck and jumped the median, striking a tree with the front passenger side of the vehicle.
The father, Luis Gomez, 76, who was in the passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver was transported to Broward Health North.
According to Coral Springs Police Sgt. Carla Kmiotek, the accident is still under investigation and they have not ruled out whether speed or alcohol was a contributing factor. Both father and son were from Coral Springs she said.
