Brightline Train Strikes with a Car on Aventura’s Rails

On Monday, April 4, 2022, around 3:00 p.m., a Brightline train crashed with a car on the rails in Aventura. Surveillance footage from a neighboring business shows the motorist of the gray car swerving around a white SUV, then onto the rails and into the direction of the train. The vehicle appears to have driven in the westbound lane against traffic and across the eastbound gate, which seemed to be broken. Aventura police were on the scene of the crash, which occurred shortly after 3 p.m. near 21500 E. Dixie Highway, exactly on the border separating Hallandale Beach and Aventura. Parts of the car, including what seems to be its engine and gearbox, were seen scattered over the pavement. According to witnesses, the driver, who has yet to be named, was able to just walk away from the collision and was taken to a local hospital. The automobile was eventually taken away from the site. Several cars have attempted to circumvent the safety gates in recent months. Passengers on a Brightline train were stranded for more than two hours last week when it crashed with a tractor trailer towing a Tesla. Drivers were advised to seek an alternative route by officials.
