Two Broward County teens were killed and three others were hurt Sunday night when the pickup truck they were in crashed along Alligator Alley, ejecting some of them, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The single-vehicle accident happened in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 75 near Mile Marker 92 about 8:30 p.m.
According to FHP, the crash killed two teens from Weston, Sasha Abitante, 18 and Juan Zambrano, 17. Both of them were passengers in the 1997 Dodge pickup truck being driven by Nickolas Wagy, 18, of Weston, an FHP report said.
Two other passengers, Dylan Delgado Brian Corbet, both 18 and both from Fort Lauderdale, were taken to hospitals in critical condition while a third, Gabriel Fernandez, 18, of Weston was hospitalized in serious condition.
Wagy, the driver, suffered minor injuries, the report said.
According to investigators, Wagy was heading east on I-75 when, for unknown reasons, the pickup drove onto the unpaved median. While trying to get back on the road, Wagy overcorrected twice before the pickup overturned, ejecting some of the passengers.
It wasn’t immediately clear which of the vehicle’s occupants were ejected, but according to the report Wagy was the only one wearing a seatbelt.
