The crash happened shortly after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. It began with two motorcycles in the left lane and a four-door Kia in the center lane, ahead of the motorcycles, according to FHP. All were eastbound near Hiatus Road.
The Kia, driven by Erica Vieira Borges, 22, of Sunrise, moved into the left lane, and one motorcycle crashed into the back of it, FHP said.
The motorcyclist, Josue Rene Robles Duprey, 25, of Miramar, was thrown from his 2007 Yamaha R6 motorcycle, which skidded across the roadway and stopped in an exit lane.
Borges’ Kia veered off the roadway and hit a guardrail, FHP said. It then moved back onto the interstate and was struck by the second motorcycle.
The second motorcyclist, Shaun L. Pasley, 22, of Miramar, was thrown from his 2008 Honda CBR 1000 motorcycle, FHP said. Both the Kia and second motorcycle then caught on fire.
Duprey and Pasley both were taken to Broward General Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. Duprey died from his injuries, FHP said. Pasley was in critical condition.
Borges had minor injuries.
The crash remains under investigation. Both motorcyclists wore helmets.
