A teenage driver with a learners permit has been critically injured and her dad who was her supervising driver is also critically injured after a two-vehicle crash in Palm Beach County.
Police say the 22-year-old was learning to drive a Suzuki Swift on Wellington Road, north of Palm Beach County, under the supervision of her 46-year-old father.
When they reached the intersection of Old Northern Road and Boca Raton Avenue, their car collided with a Ford Falcon forcing both cars off the road.
A chief inspector told reporters today that multiple emergency crews, including seven ambulance crews and a medical helicopter, rushed to the scene and rushed the victims to the hospital.
“The 46-year-old father, the 22-year old girl, and a passenger in the Swift, are currently at Delray Medical Center. They were all transported there in critical condition,” FHP said.
“The 38-year-old driver of the Falcon was not seriously injured, but he was taken to another hospital to undergo mandatory drug and alcohol testing.”
Old Northern Road was blocked in both directions after the incident and was expected to be closed for some time.
“It’s absolutely tragic when these things occur. All drivers should be aware to take care,” the chief inspector said.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call the Florida Highway Patrol.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
