Update on Wiles Road Crash

Additional Update – Driver identified
BSO has provided additional information on the crash last night:

The driver who was killed Monday night after losing control of his vehicle and hitting a utility pole on Wiles Road has been identified as 20-year-old Jeffery Ramaglia of Coconut Creek.
Just after 9 p.m., Ramaglia was driving a Lexus IS 350 eastbound on Wiles Road at an extremely high rate of speed. Witnesses told Broward Sheriff’s Office’s traffic homicide investigators that he swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle that was going the speed limit. The Lexus rotated, slid sideways into the median and rolled over on its roof. It continued sliding across westbound lanes for more than 600 feet and collided with a utility pole on the north side of the road. Ramaglia was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle.

A driver lost his life Monday night after losing control of his vehicle and hitting a utility pole. Speed may be a factor in the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s ensuing traffic homicide investigation.
The driver was heading east on Wiles Road at 9:05 p.m. when, for reasons as yet unknown, he lost control of his dark-colored sedan and drove over the median, flipped and hit a utility pole. The driver was thrown from the car, which then caught fire. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue extinguished the fire and pronounced the driver dead on scene.
Debris from the crash hit another vehicle, but its occupants were uninjured.
Traffic homicide detectives continue the investigation.
