A 45-year-old Pompano Beach man lost control of his vehicle Sunday evening and hit a tree, throwing him from the vehicle and killing him, according to Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide investigators.
At 6:49 p.m., Scott Tibus was driving his 1999 silver Chevrolet Malibu when he attempted to merge into northbound traffic in the 2600 block of North Dixie Highway in Pompano Beach.
