Deputy Sheriff Daniel Rivera succumbed to injuries sustained 10 days earlier when he was involved in a single-vehicle crash along I-95, near Copans Road, in Pompano Beach.
He was en route to the police station at approximately 6:15 am when his patrol car left the roadway during a period of rain. The vehicle struck a tree on the passenger side, causing Deputy Rivera to suffer severe head injuries. He was transported to Broward Health North where he remained in critical condition until passing away on the night of September 21st, 2013.
Deputy Rivera had served with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office for 10 years and was assigned to the Pompano Beach District Office. He is survived by his parents and siblings.

A Broward Sheriff’s deputy has died from injuries sustained in a Sept. 11 crash, officials said.

Deputy Daniel Rivera, 32, was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. Saturday at Broawrd Health North, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

It’s still unknown what caused the single-car crash which happened around 6:15 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-95 just north of Atlantic Boulevard near Copans Road. Officials said he was on his way to work and getting off at an exit when the crash happened.

Aerial footage showed the deputy’s car wrapped around a palm tree just off the highway.

Rivera was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and underwent a five-hour brain surgery following the crash.

The BSO said Rivera spent 10 years with the agency, first as a Department of Detention deputy before he was transferred to the Department of Law Enforcement in May 2012. He was assigned to the Pompano Beach district office as a road patrol deputy, BSO said.

Funeral arrangements are still pending.
