A 66-year-old woman from Vero Beach was injured following a wreck in Indian River County, FHP says.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the 3-vehicle crash happened at the intersection of 27th Avenue SW and 13th Street SW.
FHP said the woman was driving northbound on County Road 607 approaching 13th Street SW. At the same time, a Chevrolet was traveling northbound on County Road 607 approaching 13th Street SW. The woman was directly behind the Chevrolet.
A third vehicle was traveling southbound on County Road 607 approaching 13th Street SW. FHP said the Chevrolet slowed down for traffic ahead.
For unknown reasons, the woman failed to slow down and swerved to the left. The front right of her car collided with the rear left of the Chevrolet.
Her car traveled in a northerly direction into the southbound lane, colliding with the front left of the second car. The second car traveled overturned, and the woman was critically injured. First emergency responders arrived at the scene shortly after the 3-vehicle collision. The injured victim was flown to the hospital with critical injuries.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No one else was hurt in the wreck, but the report says charges are pending.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious 3-vehicle accident, which ultimately, resulted in critical injuries.
