Five people have been hospitalized after a driver lost control and crashed an SUV into the staircase of a Miami Medical Center.
Six people were in the Nissan SUV when the driver lost control and slammed into the sidewalk of the building near the intersection of Northwest 21st Avenue and Northwest Seventh Street, Miami Department of Fire-Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll said.
First emergency responders were called soon after the crash happened. Crews rushed to the scene of the crash. It happened at the intersection of Northwest 21st Avenue and Northwest Seventh Streets. Five people inside the SUV were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, NW 12th Ave, Miami.
“As of the time of this report, firefighters are working to rescue crash victims following a single-car crash near NW 21st Ave. in Miami,” The Miami Department of Fire-Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll said. “Some had to be extricated using tools,” Carroll said.
It was not immediately known what charges the driver is facing. Further details on the crash also were not available.
Authorities blocked off the scene of the crash for several hours to investigate. This temporary closure is delaying traffic. Vehicles are seen pulling into the parking lot of nearby Citrus Grove Middle School. Others are taking a detour through side streets such as NW 4th st. Drivers are advised to use alternative routes to avoid delays.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash: “This is a tragic accident in Miami-Dade. 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 there are children in the area. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation to find out what are your rights”.
