Twenty-three-year-old Mohammad Khan crashed his Lamborghini into a pole in the early hours of the morning on June 10th. The vehicle burst into flames and the young man did not survive the crash. He was traveling with a woman at the time of the incident who was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital Ryder Trauma Center by fire rescue teams.
This took place around 151 NE 82nd street, which is considered to be on the border of Miami-Dade and the city of Miami. The crash reportedly knocked down a power line, and the car continued through a fence. The commotion startled neighbors as sparks flew around 1:15 A.M. near homes and apartment complexes.
“We were asleep, so when we heard the crash, everybody just got out,” a man who lives nearby recalled. “Everybody just, you know, got across the street and police came.” Via WSVN.com
The state of the woman transported to the hospital is not known at this time. It is reported that one of the neighbors who vacated the apartment building pulled her out of the burning vehicle.
Unfortunately, this intersection is no stranger to tragic events and many are curious to see what steps the community can take to curtail future accidents.
Toward the end of May, three people were killed when a car crashed into a home in that area. Earlier that month, a woman was run over by a car looking to escape authorities.
“I urge anyone coming over the Causeway that turns into 82nd Street from the Beach to the city to drive the speed limit,” said Miami Police Chief Manny Morales. Via CBSNews.com
