Description of Incident:

The Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit is investigating a two-car crash in Tamarac that left one man dead this morning.

The fatal incident occurred at about 9:30 a.m. in the 3800 block of West Commercial Boulevard. A black Acura, driven by Mark McKenzie, 26, was westbound on Commercial and a dark blue Honda CRV, driven by Joseph Mudahy, 73, was eastbound, making a left turn into the Bank of America. The two vehicles collided and the Acura came to rest against a wooden utility pole.
