Multi-vehicle Florida crash sends 2 to hospital

On Behalf of | Jan 29, 2020 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

A multi-vehicle crash in Hallandale Beach, Florida, involved at least three cars, caused extensive property damage and sent two people to the hospital. The serious crash occurred midmorning last Monday when a white car allegedly struck the rear of a black one after running a red light. 

Eyewitnesses describe the white car driving erratically at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. The force of the collision reportedly tore the black car apart, sending the back wheels into a third red car. The driver of the black car, who escaped the crash with what seems to be a minor injury to his leg, said that he did not even see the white car’s approach due to the speed with which it was traveling. He reported that he only felt the jolt from the white car hitting his vehicle. 

The white car reportedly hit a tree before coming to rest. Two of its occupants ended up in the hospital due to the crash. One had only minor injuries, but the hospital admitted the other as a trauma patient. Doctors expect both to recover, but no further information about their conditions is available. 

An eyewitness observed smoke coming from the white car after it came to rest. Fearing it was about to explode, he hurried over to help the occupants escape. He then saw the driver of the vehicle exit the car by himself with an evident nosebleed. 

Because little information is available regarding the injuries sustained in the crash, it is unclear how long the recovery process will take. Those affected either directly and indirectly by a car accident may wish to consult an attorney.
