Coral Springs, FL (June 26, 2021) – Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol and Coral Springs officers said that two people died in a wrong-way crash on Thursday morning, June 24.
The wreck happened around 10:30 a.m. when the male driver of a black Bentley appeared to lose control of his car on eastbound 6100 Wiles Road just west of Creekside Drive. Coral Springs Police Officer Chris Swinson said that the Bentley then entered the westbound lanes of Wiles Road and hit a red Hyundai.
The female driving the Hyundai, identified as 32-year-old Sangita Burrell, was pronounced dead by first responders from Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Rescue at the scene. The driver of the wrong-way Bentley also died in the collision.
A third car, a 2003 Lincoln SUV, was also hit by the out-of-control Bentley, though the driver was not injured. The Lincoln driver remained at the scene and spoke with investigators.
The crash remains under investigation, but anyone with information was asked to contact Coral Springs Police Traffic Homicide Investigator Jason Whisnant.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Sangita Burrell.
