A rollover crash near the Woolbright Road exit injured two and stalled traffic on Palm Beach County’s Interstate 95.
“Traffic cameras showed one vehicle on its roof in the middle of I-95 with multiple lanes closed,” Troopers said. That crash happened in the northbound lanes of the interstate, closing multiple lanes. Florida Highway Patrol authorities say two people sustained serious injuries in that crash. It involved a black Sedan car.
The 54-year-old driver identified as Alex Matthews as well as one passenger was injured in the crash. The passenger, identified as Tom Ricky, 21, was said to be Matthews’ son’s friend.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the crash happened. The victims were transported to the hospital’s trauma unit. Police and fire crews are at the scene. “The vehicle will be removed from the road and traffic will be back to normal in about three hours,” FHP Spokeswoman said.
It will be recalled that northbound lanes on I-95 from Gateway Boulevard in Boynton Beach to Sixth Avenue South in Lake Worth are also currently closed due to a fatal deputy-involved shooting in Lantana today.
Drivers are advised to use alternative routes to avoid delays. The best alternate routes to take would be US One, the Florida Turnpike or Military Trail.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash: “This is a tragic accident and especially sad when a child of the driver was hurt in the crash. We hope that it can be quickly discovered what the cause was. It is possible that someone was distracted while behind the wheel but at this point that is unknown. 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”.
