Six people have been critically injured and hospitalized after a major multi-car crash on Interstate 95, officials say.
The crash, which was described as ‘very serious,’ happened at the exit ramp of I-95 near 10th Avenue North, Florida Highway firefighters said.
A spokeswoman for FHP said there had been a ‘number of fatalities’ in the crash which has closed two lanes on I-95 and a part of 10th Avenue North.
Fire crews said that multiple vehicles were involved in a crash near mile marker 64 on I-95 South. The multi-vehicle crash that left six people critically injured involved three vehicles. The driver of a taxi and a female passenger are in a coma.
Describing the crash, a witness said, ‘I heard two loud bangs when the crash happened. Four men in a car were all thrown from their vehicle. The scene was very upsetting. Everyone abandoned their cars and people flocked from everywhere to see what happened.’
Emergency services arrived minutes after. Palm Beach County firefighters also responded to the crash. All first responders at the scene are doing their best to help the victims.
‘This is an extremely complex and distressing crash scene that requires multi-agency teamwork. We are working with partner agencies to establish the cause of this collision,’ FHP spokeswoman said.
Drivers on this route should expect some delays until the crash is cleared. It is best to exit I-95 on Forest Hill Blvd in the North and 6th Avenue South.
West Palm Beach attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate accident with a death of one woman: “This is a tragic accident here in Palm Beach County. We hope for the families sake that it can be quickly discovered what the cause was. Please be careful whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. This is especially true when you are transporting children in your vehicle. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation to find out what are your rights”.
