Two men and a woman were injured in a crash on the Florida Turnpike in Palm Beach County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The crash happened near the Jog Road exit in West Palm Beach.
‘This is a vehicle crash with injuries and a roadblock,’ said the FHP spokeswoman.
The FHP said a truck towing a van struck a guardrail and overturned. The tow truck driver and the two occupants from the van that was being towed were injured, troopers said.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victims were transported to the St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment.
Of those transported tow men are sustained serious injuries, the FHP said. The woman suffered critical and life threatening injuries. She was also taken to St. Marys Medical Center, according to troopers. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
Two lanes on the Turnpike are blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. The delay of traffic on this route is due to the severity of the crash. It is best to use an alternative route.
Please drive with caution and stay safe.
