There is no way to protect yourself from a driver going the wrong way. This is a very tragic accident.
A 911 call warned that a driver of a truck was heading south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 75 near Royal Palm Boulevard in West Ft Lauderdale,
Moments later, the red 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck slammed head-on into a white 2011 Cadillac just south of the Sheridan Street overpass and burst into flames, Baker said. Both drivers died: the Cadillac’s driver, Marcos Goya, 37, of Lima, Peru, and the truck’s driver Walter Webb, 45, of Zephyrhills, Fla.
Neither carried any passengers.
It was too early to tell whether alcohol contributed to the crash, Baker said.

Tragic accident involving high school students in Cypress Bay High School which is in Weston, FL. Sunday morning two students were killed and two critically injured when their pickup flipped in the median on Alligator Alley. There were no other vehicles involved. The only student not injured was the driver who was also the only person wearing a seat belt. Grief counselors were called in to assist other mourning students. This is obviously a tragedy and every parents nightmare. Please have everyone in your car wear a seatbelt.
