28-Year-Old Woman Badly Injured In Fort Pierce Car Crash

A 28-year-old faces a long and painful road to recovery after suffering a grisly car accident injury, but it hasn’t stopped her from thanking the people that were first on the scene.

PSL Cop Car 1010

The 28-year-old sustained an open compound fracture to her right leg after colliding with another vehicle on a Fort Pierce Highway at St. Lucie County.

By coincidence, an Indian River County Hospital nurse witnessed the crash and was able to provide first aid, placing a pad over the open leg wound until paramedics arrived.

“I was screaming in pain,” the 28-year-old victim said.

“I was yelling for someone to call my husband and I remember having bad seatbelt burn.”

Her husband was on scene quickly and reportedly did very well to contain the horror he felt when confronted with the sight of his badly injured wife.

“The bone was sticking out of her leg,” her husband said.

Paramedics worked to provide pain relief before getting the driver off to the hospital, where she remained for a while after undergoing surgery.

Now wrapped in a full-leg brace, the injured leg will require months of physical therapy.

The victim, still hasn’t been told if she will regain full use of the limb.

Sixteen people including a 12-year-old and four fellow Troop 161 Scouts were hiking along Fellsmere Road in Indian River County when a drunk 41-year-old man veered off the road and slammed into them, officials said.

Cops said, they found the 41-year-old reeking of booze, wobbling on his feet and slurring his speech.

“I was coming from the Fellsmere Golf Club. Yes, I had three drinks,” the Gifford resident told investigators shortly after the crash, according to a criminal complaint.

The 12-year-old was flown by helicopter to Delray Medical Center, then airlifted to another hospital in Palm Beach County where he succumbed to his injuries.

“Our Scouting family is going through a terribly painful time,” the Indian River County chapter of the Boy Scouts said in a statement. Our condolences are with the family of the deceased.

“I knew he was going to grow up to be a wonderful man,” a neighbor said.

“He would always play here in front of my house because it was safe,” she said, recalling how the boy’s parents would set up traffic cones on the tranquil cul-de-sac. “I’m praying for them right now.”

The other nine injured Scouts were hospitalized.

25-Year-Old Antonia Creek Killed On Florida Highway

Helping people was part of Antonia Creek’s DNA, according to family and friends. It ended up costing the 25-year-old Boynton Beach mother her life.

night driving 117

Creek was traveling southbound on Interstate 95 near Titusville when she came upon a disabled van stranded in a travel lane and got out to help. A Chevy pickup swerved once to avoid the van and then again to avoid a crash. It struck Creek as she desperately ran toward the interstate’s grass median. She died at the scene.

“Anybody should be applauded for wanting to help somebody,” said a FHP Sergeant. “They just want to help, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

But much can go wrong when a “good Samaritan” motorist, as FHP called Creek, gets out of their vehicle to assist another on a super-fast highway, especially at night.

“You just have to be careful, but even being careful is no certainty that something may not happen,” a FHP official said. “It only takes one driver who isn’t paying attention or focused on something else for a tragedy to take place.”

A spokesman for the American Automobile Association said, motorists should pull over to the roadway’s shoulder before taking further action. If a stranded vehicle is in the roadway, calling 911 may be the best approach.

According to the arrest report, a 44-year-old man’s evening began to go south when a resident of Granada Road spotted the man rummaging through a neighbor’s Toyota Rav 4 and then leaving in a white van.

PB sher 1027

The resident called police with a description of the man and the vehicle. An officer spotted the van headed north on Dixie Highway headed for the intersection of Okeechobee.

The officer reported the van was going about 35 mph until the officer turned on the cruiser’s lights and siren, at which point the van sped up, running two red lights and heading north into a stretch of Dixie that is one-way going south. The van narrowly missed a Florida Highway Patrol cruiser eastbound but then slammed into an oncoming silver Honda.

Authorities say, the Honda’s driver, though taken to the hospital, did not survive the crash.

Rescue crews had to pry the van driver out of that vehicle. The van had been reported stolen in Riviera Beach that day, according to the arrest report.

The 44-year-old driver was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center, but a West Palm Beach Police sergeant said the man has been since moved to the jail.
