Teacher killed in accident involving Coral Springs woman • Coral Springs Talk

A Coral Springs woman was involved in a three-vehicle accident that killed a teacher in Pompano Beach on Monday, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
Delerick Easter II, 27, a teacher from Broward who lives in Fort Lauderdale, died of his injuries after being ejected, and Farideh Shafagh, 76, of Fort Lauderdale, along with a passenger in his car, were suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the deputies mentioned.
Maria Pisani De Molina, 65, the Coral Springs resident involved in the accident, was not injured, according to BSO.
The wreckage occurred just after 7 p.m. as Shafagh and two passengers were traveling north in a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta approaching Southeast 15th Street on the Southern Federal Highway, driving into the turn lane at left, according to the BSO Traffic Homicide Unit.
At the same time, investigators said, Easter was driving south in a 2017 Honda CBR1000 on the South Federal Highway, approaching Southeast 15th Street, using the right lane.
As Shafagh approached the intersection, she turned left off the southern Federal Highway onto Southeast 15th Street and crossed directly ahead into Easter Honda Road, according to BSO.
“This maneuver caused Easter’s Honda to strike the passenger side of Shafagh’s Volkswagen in a T-Bone type collision,” the agency said in a news release. “The Honda then rolled to a stop and struck the front of Maria Pisani De Molina’s 2022 Hyundai Elantra, which was stopped at the intersection, preparing to turn north onto South Federal Highway.”
Investigators say Easter was ejected from the vehicle and transported to Broward Health Medical Center by Pompano Beach Fire Rescue. He was later pronounced dead.
Paramedics also took Shafagh and a passenger in his car to the same hospital. Their injuries were not considered serious.
Detectives said neither excessive speed nor impaired driving appeared to be contributing factors to the crash. The investigation of the wreckage is continuing.
