LAUDERHILL, Fla. — A woman who was sitting at a Florida bus stop was killed when two cars that police said were driving “recklessly” caused a chain reaction crash that left at least seven people injured.

Media outlets report surveillance video shows a vehicle hitting two women who were sitting on a bus bench on Thursday afternoon in Lauderhill, which is near Fort Lauderdale.

Lauderhill Police Lt. Mike Santiago tells media outlets that Helaine Elize died in the collision.

Witnesses told police they saw two cars driving erratically before the chain-reaction crash.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash.
