(Pembroke Park, FL) – A 26-year-old Miami woman is lucky to be alive after the car she was driving slammed through a fence and careened into a mobile home Monday night. Tanesha Graham was northbound on SW 52 Avenue approaching Hallandale Beach Boulevard just after 7 p.m. when, according to Broward Sheriff’s deputies, she went through the intersection and crashed through a fence at Dale Village Mobile Home Park. The car narrowly missed two large concrete poles and crashed into the mobile home. Fortunately, the seasonal residents had not yet returned from Canada. Graham was pinned inside the vehicle which was inside the collapsed mobile home. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue’s Technical Rescue Team, which specializes in difficult rescues, responded and freed the woman in about 25 minutes. She was transported by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue to Memorial Regional Hospital for treatment of her injuries, which were believed to be non-life threatening. No other injuries were reported and westbound Hallandale Beach Boulevard remained closed until almost 9 p.m. while the car was retrieved.
