Driver In Critical Condition After Accident Sends Car Into Canal

Chopper 6 was over the scene of an accident that sent a vehicle into a canal and left a woman in critical condition Sunday afternoon.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, three cars were involved in the incident, which took place at the intersection of NW 27th Avenue and NW 203rd Street.

Officials say a Lexus SUV collided with a Jeep before driving through a chain link fence, colliding with a third vehicle and veering into a canal.

The SUV was fully submerged when nearby troopers and officers hopped into the canal and rescued the driver, police say.

The driver is currently in critical condition at Aventura Hospital.
