Car Accident with a Stolen Vehicle

A 16-year-old male was driving recklessly in a stolen 2013 Lincoln MKZ on Northwest 7th Avenue before crashing into Miami-Dade College’s Liberty City campus, which killed one person and injured three others. The teen was driving in the vehicle with four other individuals before running a red light on Northwest 62nd Street around 1:00 a.m. The vehicle was reportedly stolen on August 18 near Northwest 13th Avenue and Northwest 147th Street. After the collision occurred, the driver was facing charges of reckless driving, leaving the scene of the accident after an injury, and driving without a driver’s license.

The car accident occurred after the male drove through a red light and swerved to miss several cars before hitting a curb and a pillar at MDC’s Carrie P. Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center. The car then caught on fire and trapped each passenger, resulting in the death of one individual.
