A 22-year-old woman was killed and a 24-year-old man was injured in the Florida Keys after they were involved in a head-on car accident with a taxi on May 13. The pair had traveled to Islamorada for an annual end-of-season party for South Florida service-industry workers. Authorities suspect that both victims were drinking and it appears that neither was wearing a seatbelt.
Authorities report that the 24-year-old victim was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami-Dade, while the 71-year-old driver of the taxi was taken to Mariners Hospital. The older man remains in serious condition. The female victim was also transported to Ryder but she died shortly after the collision.
