Airborne Car Slams Into 2nd-Floor Office
It’s 2018, so where are the flying cars? The answer to that question was Hobe Sound, Martin County where a white sedan crashed into a dental office on the second floor of a two-story building.
A Martin County Fire Authority spokesman said the vehicle became airborne when it came from a side street at high speed after hitting a cab and T-boned the center median on 17th Street, the Post reports. FHP reports that police say a dirt mound surrounding the concrete median apparently helped the car achieve liftoff.
The crash caused a small blaze inside the office, which firefighters quickly extinguished. Florida Highway Patrol officials says one person in the car was able to get out on their own while the other was rescued after heavy equipment was used to stabilize the vehicle.
A witness tells Florida Highway Patrol officials that the one occupants ended up dangling from the bottom of the vehicle until police could catch him. Firefighters used a specialized firetruck to extract the vehicle from the building.
Both occupants were treated for minor injuries. Police say the driver of the Nissan Altima admitted to using narcotics, The Post reports.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a Nissan Altima, which ultimately, resulted in injuries. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer.
