The accident happened around 6:00 p.m. at the intersection of South Hoover Street and West 95th Street. A 64-year-old woman, identified as Brenda Joyce Scott, was heading southbound on Hoover Street in a silver Mercedes. As she progressed through the intersection with 95th Street, a silver Jeep Renegade blew through the stop sign at high speeds and slammed into Brenda Scott’s vehicle. The impact sent the Jeep spinning out and onto a sidewalk, while the Mercedes went through a fence and into a palm tree.
Emergency medical responders tragically declared Brenda Joyce Scott dead at the scene. The two females inside the Jeep immediately fled the scene on foot, leaving behind a shoe. Investigators are attempting to determine who was driving the car, and the investigation is ongoing at this time to determine cause and liability.
