Second girl dies from crash on I-95, family says

Akeena Avanel Bennett and her sister Keanna Ariel Bennett were on on their way to church Sunday, driving in the South Florida sunshine with their godmother to a service in Fort Lauderdale.

But instead of an afternoon of song and prayer, the girls’ family is in mourning. There was a devastating crash on Interstate 95 and trips to a hospital. Akeena, 2, died in the crash. Keanna, 5, who had been on life support at the hospital, died Monday night, according to a post on their mother’s Facebook page.

The girls’ parents, Annette and Keane Bennett, of Deerfield Beach, had been out of town, having flown to New York for a wedding, Annette Bennett said Monday. After receiving news of the crash, they returned home to be with Keanna.

The child was at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.
