A somber evening in Miami-Dade County saw multiple lives lost and others injured in two separate vehicle collisions on Tuesday. In Hialeah, a devastating T-bone crash involving three vehicles resulted in the deaths of two individuals, WSVN reports. The incident, which unfolded just before 8 p.m. on Southeast Fifth Street in the 400 block, also left an elderly woman in critical condition, who was subsequently airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The collision involved a trio of minors, two of whom were taken to a hospital as a precaution. According to the CBS Miami, the conditions of the individuals rushed to the hospital remain unknown. Hialeah Police and Fire Rescue are investigating the cause of a crash.

Less than an hour later, a gruesome scene unfolded in the Redlands, where two pickup trucks collided violently near the intersection of Southwest 172nd Avenue and 272nd Street. The accident, which occurred shortly before 9 p.m., left five people injured, with one man facing critical injuries and requiring airlift to Jackson South Medical Center, as per WSVN.

Witness Yoel Perez, who came upon the aftermath of the Redland collision, described the distressing situation. "He just came out of nowhere, you know what I mean? Like, full of blood," Perez recounted. "I was like, I don't know what to do here." Perez then rendered aid to the injured driver until responders arrived on the scene, telling them, "Are you drunk or anything? I'll help you out," he told WSVN.

Authorities continue to probe into the circumstances that led to these distressing incidents, as the community mourns the losses and hopes for the recovery of the injured. Further updates are expected as the investigations progress and as the condition of hospitalized victims gets determined.
