On Sunday, October 11th, at 11:33AM, Rhiannon Samoyedny, one of Living In Oakland Park’s senior writers, posted in the Facebook group: “Bad accident happening now. Commercial and 6th. Intersection is closed. Tire kingdom sign was taken out. Looks like they are trying to get someone out of the vehicle“. Below is one of the pictures from her post:
While it may have seemed that BSO was trying to get someone out of the car, in fact, the driver, 35 year old Brazilian national, Ricardo Freitas da Silva, had been ejected from the vehicle during the accident. It is not clear if Silva was wearing seat belt.
