According to the Florida Traffic Crash Report, the Ferrari was approaching the intersection of Sawgrass Drive East early Sunday morning when the driver lost control, crossed over the southbound lane and struck the power pole.

The driver then hit the utility box and multiple trees before the car came to a stop.

According to the report, during the crash, the two men were thrown from the convertible in different locations onto the opposite side of the road.


James Richardson died and Jeffrey Richmond was hospitalized in critical condition.

According to the report, both victims were from out of state. The owner of the car was not in it at the time of the crash.
