Description of Incident:

Traffic homicide detectives are investigating the death of a Weston man after a crash which took place the evening of May 29 at the intersection of Saddle Club Road and Indian Trace.

At approximately 6 p.m., Nejib Ayed was stopped at a red traffic light in the eastbound inside thru lane of Saddle Club Road. Florence Ellen S. Fitzwilliam was traveling in her 2011 Kia Sportage east in the inside lane of Saddle Club Road approaching the intersection at Indian Trace.

Fitzwilliam's SUV struck Ayed's 2016 Nissan Sentra in the rear causing his car to cross Indian Trace and come to rest in the northeast corner of the intersection. Fitzwilliam's car came to rest within the intersection.

Witnesses advised Fitzwilliam was driving in an erratic manner just prior to the crash.

Ayed died from injuries sustained during the crash. Fitzwilliam was transported to Broward Health Medical Center for treatment.

The THI investigation is ongoing. Detectives believe speed was a contributing factor.
