A Tamarac woman driving the wrong way in Coral Springs early Saturday morning died after she collided with a taxi.

According to Coral Springs Police Sergeant Carla Kmiotek, the crash happened at 5:40 a.m. on the 2700 block of Coral Ridge Drive where a preliminary investigation shows that a 2005 Nissan Altima driven by Leslie Amanda Eastland Campos, 24, of Tamarac was traveling northbound in the southbound lane. Kmiotek said that the Altima struck a taxi with two occupants: driver Mathiu Aurelien, 54, and passenger Keven Brice, 30, both of Margate. 

Aurelien and Brice were both taken to Broward Health North where Aurelien was treated and released. Brice remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Kmiotek said that Eastland Campos somehow got on the wrong side of the road, but it is too soon to know whether or not she was under the influence of alcohol.

She does urge anyone with information to contact Traffic Homicide Investigator Derek Fernandes 954-346-1754.

    The new “copyright protection” measures on this site are annoying and pointless. It now takes me seven clicks to open a story in a new tab, whereas before it only took two. Also, I can no longer copy short blurbs of text (e.g. if I want to map an address that appears in a story). Anyone who is committed to copying text and images from this site simply
    has to switch their browser into “reader view” and all the “security”
    disappears. Please rollback this “feature.”
