Three Coral Springs teenagers were killed early this morning after the vehicle they were driving in went into a canal on Brokenwoods Drive just west of University Drive.
Preliminary investigation shows that around 12:18am a 2007 red Volkswagen driven by Sean Maxey, 16, of Coral Springs was attempting to turn onto University Drive from Brokenwoods Drive. As Maxey entered University Drive his vehicle struck a 1998 gold Acura driven by Kiran Parekh, 59, of Miami. After striking the Acura Maxey drove in reverse on Brokenwoods Drive striking a street sign and guardrail before going into a canal. Maxey and three other passengers were inside the vehicle when it went into the canal. Evan Sinisgalli, 15, of Coral Springs was able to exit the vehicle and swim to land. Maxey and the other two passengers, Robert Nugent, 16, of Coral Springs and Anthony Almonte, 16, also of Coral Springs had to be extracted by Coral Springs police officers.
All four teenagers were transported to Coral Springs Medical Center where Maxey, Almonte and Nugent were pronounced dead. Sinisgalli is listed in stable condition with minor injuries. Parekh did not suffer any injuries.
