A preliminary investigation revealed Polynice was traveling at an extremely high rate of speed when his vehicle entered a twist and began to rotate clockwise as it slid sideways over the pavement. The vehicle then traveled off the west side of the roadway through the concrete swale and struck a concrete wall head-on within the tunnel.
Broward Sheriff’s Airport District deputies and Broward Fire Rescue responded, and Polynice was pronounced deceased on scene. Witnesses who observed the crash told detectives no other vehicles were involved in the incident.
Detectives say that based on the physical evidence, excessive speed is suspected as the primary cause of the crash. The investigation continues.
