Three people were injured in a Royal Palm Beach accident involving two vehicles.
According to a PBSO report, a West Palm Beach man was driving westbound in a 2017 Infiniti Q-50 on Okeechobee Boulevard near Wildcat Way prior to the accident. PBSO said it appeared that he was traveling at high speed when he lost control of the vehicle and traveled across the westbound lanes of Okeechobee Boulevard.
The car swerved sideways before it violently slammed into another vehicle – a white Sports utility vehicle. The impact of the collision disabled the SUV with a huge dent in the passenger door. The Infiniti continued to slide sideways across the sidewalk before it was halted by a tree on the north side of Okeechobee Boulevard.
The SUV driver and his passenger suffered serious injuries. Both victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Fire Rescue responded and transported the victims to the hospital. The passenger suffered a dislocation of the shoulder joint and rib fracture while the driver suffered a concussion.
The Infiniti driver suffered minor injuries as well. However, his condition is unknown at the time of this report.
Okeechobee Boulevard near Wildcat Way will remain closed until authorities are able to clear the scene.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately, resulted in three people 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.”
