Posted on Dec 02, 2010

Two people were killed this weekend in a fiery two-vehicle crash in West Kendall, in Miami-Dade County, FL. The accident occurred just before 9 p.m. on Friday, November 19th.

According to police, 18-year-old Andy Oquendo was driving a white Scion east on  Sunset Drive at SW 148th Avenue when, due to high speeds, he lost control of the vehicle.

Oquendo’s vehicle, which was carrying two passengers, spun out and hit a tree, re-entering the road and colliding with a Cadillac also heading eastbound on Sunset Drive.

Oquendo was ejected from the vehicle upon impact, but the two passengers inside were killed when the car exploded and was engulfed in flames. Oquendo was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.

Authorities have not yet released the names of the victims in the crash. The driver of the Cadillac was not hurt, but the car did sustain damage in the wreck.

Our sympathies go out to all of those involved in this fatal accident.
