A 60-year-old Miami man was killed in a single vehicle crash Friday night.
Around 7:35 p.m. on Jan. 22, Broward Sheriff Office deputies responded to a crash at the intersection of Southgate Boulevard and Southwest 83rd Avenue in North Lauderdale.
According to BSO traffic homicide detectives, the preliminary investigation reveals that prior to the crash, George Rockerman was driving a 2008 Ford F-150 eastbound on Southgate Boulevard at a high rate of speed while maneuvering in and out of traffic. Rockerman drove over a raised concrete curb, through a grass median and struck a tree.
Detectives believe excessive speed may have been a contributing factor to the crash.
