A Coral Springs resident died late yesterday evening at the 8300 block of NW 14 Street.
Preliminary investigation shows that around 7:27 p.m. a 2007 Dodge pick-up truck driven by Joseph Basile, 56, of Coral Springs was traveling east on NW 14 Street. A witness advised that Basile’s vehicle left the roadway for no apparent reason and struck a mailbox and several shrubs before striking the side of a garage located at the 8200 block of NW 14 Street.
Basile was transported to North Broward Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. No one inside the residence was injured.
It appears that Basile had an unknown medical condition that caused him to go off the roadway. The exact cause of death is pending the results from the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Officer John Malvin of the Coral Springs Police Department Traffic Unit at 954-346-1269.
