Five People Left Critical After Truck Crash

An unhinged and possibly intoxicated driver injured five people when he slammed his truck into several cars and then tried to steal a fire truck, according to officials.

MCFR 104

Police said, the man was driving a large Enterprise rental truck north on 101th Street when he began his path of destruction, crashing into a total of three vehicles near 101th Street.

The truck driver ditched his banged-up ride a little north of 101th Street and started yelling that someone was after him, according to a 23-year-old witness, who saw the chaos unfold as he was catching the Jets game at a bar across the street.

Moments later, a man in a black Mercedes Benz pulled up, saying the truck driver had hit his car and several other cars.

The witness grabbed the manic truck driver to keep him from fleeing and to stop him from brawling with the Mercedes owner in the middle of the street, he said.

The truck driver tried to climb into a fire truck and got into an argument with the firefighter in the driver’s seat, according to Indian River County fire department officials.

All five people went to the hospital including the truck driver and the firefighter, fire officials said. Five had minor injuries and three were listed as serious. None were pedestrians, police said.

Police said, the incident was not terror-related and they believe the truck driver was on drugs though they would not clarify.

The crash damaged the bridge, snarled northbound traffic on the highway for long and shut down all eastbound lanes on 10th Avenue North, authorities and Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

A spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Transportation said, a combination front-end loader and backhoe struck a beam on the overpass. The backhoe was extended upward and that’s what damaged the concrete beam, she said.

Three other vehicles were involved and there were over six people were injured, according to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.

The injured victims were taken to Delray Medical Center.

After the crash, three northbound lanes on I-95 were closed and eastbound lanes of 10th Avenue North were also closed for some time as inspectors and structural engineers looked over the damage to the overpass. Additionally, there were debris from the concrete beam spread across the roadway.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said at no point was I-95 completely closed.

FHP department said, the main cause of the crash is still under investigation.

parallax-road

Michael Ridge, 52, was critically injured at the scene of the crash, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said. Michael was walking the children on the sidewalk of Big Blue Trace not far from Riviera Beach Elementary School just before the crash occurred, the Sheriff’s Office reported in a statement.

The agency said, a 42-year-old man of Boynton Beach was driving a 2014 SUV going south on Big Blue Trace “at a high rate of speed” and “failed to reduce his speed or take evasive action to avoid a collision” with a 2015 Jeep Wrangler driven by a 22-year-old man.

Alcohol or drugs appeared to be a factor in the driver’s driving, the sheriff’s office report said.

The report said, the front of the SUV “violently impacted” the back of the Jeep, causing both vehicles to rotate and go off the road. The SUV came to rest on the shoulder.

The Jeep kept going over the shoulder and onto the sidewalk where it hit Michael and his children. Michael and his two kids were flung into the air and Michael was listed in critical condition by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue personnel, the sheriff’s report said.

Both kids also were also critically injured, sheriff’s spokeswoman said.
