Car Crashes Into Pharmacy In Fellsmere, Injuring Nine People

A pharmacist had just sat down with a patient when the walls exploded around them.

A car, driven by a 24-year-old man, slammed into a pharmacy in Fellsmere blowing out walls, breaking equipment, and halting the normalcy of a routine day at the store.

The pharmacist was in the room next door when he heard a loud boom and then watched helplessly as the room where he has kept all his pharmaceuticals for more than two decades broke apart.

“I looked up, and there’s a car all the way through the building,” he said. “Thank God no one was in that room. They all would have died.”

Five people in the store were injured in the crash, including the car’s driver and three of his friends.  None of the injuries were life threatening, a doctor that works at the pharmacy said.

A customer who was in the restroom at the time of the accident was nearly pinned against a sink when the car crashed into the building, while another person was inches from getting covered by a crumbling wall, according to another customer.

Comments:

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash.  “Be especially careful when entering an intersection with many local business present. If you were involved in an accident due to someone else being distracted, call me for a free consultation so we can discuss your rights and what compensation you may be entitled to.”

Motorcyclist And One Palm Beach Sheriff’s Officer Both Critical After Accident

The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was struck by a motorcyclist while doing traffic control in southern Palm Beach County.

The incident occurred at Kimberly Boulevard and State Road 7 in suburban Boca Raton.

State Road 7 between Glades and Yamato roads was closed for a time but has since reopened.

PBSO said both the deputy and the motorcyclist were taken to local hospitals. The deputy is still hospitalized with serious injuries. The motorcyclist only suffered minor injuries.

According to PBSO, the deputy was working traffic enforcement and obtained a speed reading of 97 mph on the motorcyclist in a 45 mph zone. He stepped into the center lane and waved the driver to pull over.

According to witnesses, the deputy had been in the roadway for more than enough time for the rider to see him and stop. The deputy was wearing a neon green reflective vest at the time.

PBSO says the rider slowed and tried to drive around the deputy, but at the same time the deputy feared the rider was going to run him over and moved slightly to his right.

The motorcyclist hit the deputy then attempted to abruptly stop which caused the motorcycle to overturn.

He was booked into the Palm Beach County jail for reckless driving resulting in serious bodily injury, no driver’s license, driving without a motorcycle tag, and driving an unregistered vehicle.

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this accident.  “It is so important to be aware of motorcyclists on the road because of the severity of their injuries in accidents.

A Davie police sergeant was struck by a car while assisting in another crash on Interstate 95, Florida Highway Patrol reports.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson told the Sun Sentinel that a police sergeant had stopped south of Royal Palm Boulevard in Broward County. As she walked along the paved shoulder of the southbound lane, she was struck by a passing car.
