FHP Trooper Witnesses Woman’s Reckless Driving on I-95 Leading to Broward Crash

Miami: A Florida Highway Patrol officer detailed a recent bi-county pursuit on Interstate 95 involving a lady in a silver BMW who wrecked after a trooper used an immobilization technique to stop her in an arrest record made public on Monday.

At around 4:50 p.m. on Friday, the trooper reported that Jacqueline Marie Maxson was driving north on the I-95 Express Lanes “left paved shoulder” in Miami-Dade County. She was detained after crashing into three vehicles in Broward County.

Trooper D. Rosario reported, “Fire rescue cleared everyone involved in the vehicle crashes shortly after arriving on the scene at approximately 5:20 p.m.”

Maxson, 34, of Sunrise, was first observed by Rosario “weaving through lanes” and endangering the safety of other motorists near Northwest 95 Street.

“I tried to conduct a traffic stop by activating my emergency equipment,” Rosario wrote.

Maxson was speeding “and aggressively changing lanes” when Rosario ordered her to halt using a loudspeaker. When Maxson disregarded the orders, the chase began.

Rosario said that before another FHP trooper joined the chase at Northwest 151 Street, she had notified the FHP Miami Regional Communication Center.

According to Rosario, four more FHP officers entered the chase at Miami Gardens Drive.

Regarding Maxson, Rosario said, “We continued north in the express lanes entering Broward County while the driver continued to weave in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed.”

When Maxson lost control, the BWM collided with three other automobiles after an FHP trooper utilized a maneuver to cause the fleeing BMW to rapidly turn 180 degrees and halt, according to Rosario.

After running to the BMW with Rosario, two officers unlocked the driver’s side door and told Maxson to come out. When she “started to resist,” one of the troopers “physically removed” Maxson and took her into custody, according to Rosario’s arrest report.

Maxson appeared in bail court on Saturday before Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Carmen Cabarga while donning a green anti-suicide smock.

Maxson was charged with careless driving, avoiding law enforcement, and nonviolently resisting an officer. Her bond was set at $8,150 by Cabarga.

She was still at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Monday morning, according to records. Michelle Ashby Delancy, a circuit judge for Miami-Dade County, was scheduled to oversee the case. Maxson’s arraignment hearing is scheduled on April 29 at 9:00 a.m.
