Fort Lauderdale cop dies after car rear-ends his Jeep in Coral Springs

An extended family of South Florida police and firefighters was in mourning Sunday following a car crash that claimed the life of 30-year-old Fort Lauderdale Police Officer Christopher Sheehan.

“He was just a great kid,” said Dennis Sheehan, a retired Fort Lauderdale Fire-Rescue Division Chief and Christopher Sheehan’s uncle. “Our family is just devastated.”

Injured in the crash, which happened at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of State Road 7 and Wiles Road, was Fort Lauderdale Fire-Rescue Capt. Jacob Snowhite, 41, of Jupiter. He remained hospitalized Sunday, according to his wife.

Sheehan was at the wheel of a 1995 Jeep Wrangler and heading north on State Road 7 when his vehicle was rear-ended by a 2010 Dodge Challenger driven by Joselyn Lopez, 29, of Margate, according to Coral Springs police.
