Hollywood Woman Dies In Multi-Vehicle Accident

Hollywood Woman Dies in Multi-Vehicle Accident

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a Hollywood woman was killed in a two-car crash down the street from her home. The accident happened just before 8 p.m. Monday near the border of Hollywood and Dania Beach. Deputies say Pamela Ennis, 69, was driving eastbound on Charles Street in a 2008 Toyota Corolla when she arrived at North 22nd Avenue, roughly a tenth of a mile from her home. As Ennis proceeded to cross the intersection, a 2019 Dodge Charger heading southbound on North 22nd Avenue T-boned her driver’s side door.

The impact caused both the Charger, driven by 19-year-old Jerrold Pough Jr., and the Corolla to come to a stop on the southeast corner of the intersection in Dania Beach. Hollywood Fire Rescue transported both drivers as well as the Charger’s only passenger to Memorial Regional Hospital, where Ennis was later pronounced dead.

Common Causes of T-Bone Car Accident

T-bone accidents are really just side impact collisions and they can occur for a number of different reasons, with many of the reasons involving driver errors. Generally, these types of accidents most often occur at intersections when one of the drivers fails to stop at a stop sign or traffic light, or otherwise fails to yield the right-of-way to the other driver. Some common causes of T-bone accidents include: Failure to come to a complete stop. Some drivers may choose to roll through a four-way intersection. This is an illegal violation of traffic safety rules and one of the main causes of T-bone accidents.

Failure to yield: If the driver of one vehicle stops at a four-way intersection, he may not yield to the other driver who has the right to proceed first. In addition, when two vehicles enter the intersection at the same time, the driver on the left has the right to proceed first—often ignored by many negligent drivers.

Running red lights: Running a red light is especially dangerous because a driver may do what most drivers do in this situation—increase his speed to get through the light before it turns red. This is illegal and could be considered negligence when a T-bone collision results.

Turning across traffic lanes: Even when a driver is in a turning lane and can legally make a turn across traffic lanes, he must wait until it is safe to do so. If the driver cuts across traffic and does not make the turn in time, he most likely will be found liable if he causes a T-bone accident.

Driving Under the influence: If a driver is driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol, his reflexes, vision, and reasoning abilities may be affected.
