FHP Says It Is A Miracle A Woman And Her Son Are Still Alive After A Terrifying Car Crash

The mother of an 8-year-old boy was critically injured when her vehicle was hit head-on by a  man that was drinking and driving the wrong way down a busy interstate highway, reports say.

night driving 117

The 29-year-old mom was airlifted to a local hospital by paramedics at the scene of the crash, according to the post. She was the mother of an 8-year-old son.

Police identified a 46-year-old as the driver of the wrong-way vehicle. He is charged with driving while intoxicated, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

Authorities say the 46-year-old was driving a Nissan Armada eastbound in the westbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County.

The 46-year-old driver first sideswiped a vehicle, which caused it to spin and get hit by another vehicle. He then hit the woman’s vehicle head-on, which sent it into the path of a semi-trailer. The semi jack-knifed and hit the highway’s cement median.

The 46-year-old vehicle burst into flames after the crash. He survived and is in a hospital’s intensive care unit. It is a miracle the woman and her son also survived the crash, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

Florida Highway Patrol is still investing the accident.

A person crossing the track south of Camino Real was struck by the northbound train, the Palm Beach County police department said.

Other crashes also have taken place along the FEC tracks and the Tri-Rail-Amtrak tracks to their west.

Freespace has said in the past that its safety and security team evaluates areas where accidental deaths and suicides have occurred. The rail line has started a public-awareness program to warn pedestrians to heed lights and crossing gates.

All Aboard Florida, which operates Freespace, is owned by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC, a global investment management firm. Fortress Investment Group LLC is contracted to manage and advise New Media Investments Inc., which owns GateHouse Media, the parent company of The Palm Beach Post.
