PEMBROKE PARK, FL – A multi-vehicle crash left a woman dead in Pembroke Park this past Sunday, and Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide detectives are investigating the circumstances behind the collision. According to investigators, at approximately 2:35 a.m. January 3, Patricia L. Norris, 31, and Stephanie Eugene, 31, were traveling eastbound in a 2019 Mercedes-Benz SUV near the 4400 block of West Hallandale Beach Boulevard in Pembroke Park.

For reasons unknown, Norris, the driver of the Mercedes-Benz, lost control of the vehicle. The car subsequently exited the roadway along the south side of the street and traveled over a sidewalk and into a parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz then went airborne after sliding over a dip in the parking lot and tumbled over seven vehicles before coming to a final rest.

The impact of the collision also caused damage to several businesses in the area. Norris, who was unrestrained by a seatbelt, was ejected from the SUV and pronounced deceased on scene by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue personnel at approximately 2:43 a.m. Eugene, who was restrained, was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital with minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.  

Detectives say excessive speed is believed to be a contributing factor to this incident. The investigation continues.
