Two men killed and two women injured after an early morning crash at Miami Beach

Two men died and two women were hospitalized after an SUV crashed into one of the towering trees along Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach.

According to Miami Beach police, the car was involved in a collision on Saturday around 5:45 am along the 3100 block of Pine Tree Drive. A man died on the scene. Another man died during transport to Jackson’s Rider Trauma Unit, and two women are being treated for injuries.

Investigations continue, but Miami Beach police spokesman Ernest Rodriguez said the driver heading south turns left when he hits another car heading north and hits a tree. He said he may have been trying to avoid.

Traffic between 30th and 34th Avenues along Pinetree Drive is closed in both directions. Police say drivers should use Sheridan Avenue instead.

This is a developing story.
