Many Injured In Multi-Vehicle Accident In Stuart
Several people were hospitalized after a multi-vehicle accident at the intersection of NW 14th Street and NW Gerry Lane in Stuart. Four vehicles and a motorcycle were involved in the crash, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.
A 2011 Acura TSX traveling northbound turned left onto NW 14th Street from NW Gerry Lane in front of a 2013 Ford F-150, the sheriff’s office said. The vehicles collided, sending the truck and its 21-year-old driver of Belle Glade over a concrete median and into the northbound lanes of traffic.
A Lexus SUV immediately hit the truck, pushing it into the path of a Ford E-350, a full-size van. The van hit the driver’s side of the truck and went on to slightly side-brush a motorcycle. The van driver and truck driver were seriously injured in the multi-vehicle accident. Both were wearing seat belts, according to the accident report. A passenger in the van, who died in the crash, was not wearing a seat belt.
The Acura driver was not injured in the wreck, the sheriff’s office said. She was wearing a seat belt. On the other hand, the Lexus driver, also of Belle Glade, sustained minor injuries in the wreck.
All injured victims were taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center. It is unclear whether the motorcyclist who only sustained bruises to the knee cap was taken to a hospital. No word on what caused the crash and no further information is available at this time.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two pedestrians, which ultimately, resulted in a woman and her son suffering extensive auto crash injuries. We wish the victims a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. 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 and find out what your rights are.”
