Family visiting South Florida hit by truck while walking
DANIA BEACH, Fla. - A pickup truck struck a family of six tourists as they were walking back to their South Florida hotel Sunday night.
The Sun Sentinel reports one woman's leg was severed and a 10-year-old also suffered serious leg injuries. Four people, including the 57-year-old driver, were taken to the hospital.
A spokesperson with Broward Sheriff's Fire Rescue says the family was in Florida for a cruise departing from Port Everglades Monday. Authorities have not released the identities of the victims or driver.
The family was reportedly walking on a large stretch of grass when the truck crashed into them. The truck then struck a fence and crashed into a light pole.
Investigators are looking at alcohol as a possible factor in the crash.
