One person is injured after a rollover crash on southbound Interstate 95 southwest of Palm City, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The crash which involved two vehicles occurred near the rest areas at mile marker 106, west of Florida’s Turnpike, according to FHP’s traffic monitoring website.
First emergency responders arrived at the scene shortly after the crash happened. The man was found trapped in his vehicle and freed with Jaws of life.
One person was injured in the crash, FHP spokesman Lt. Alvaro Feola said in a news release. His injuries were critical and life-threatening. The other driver who only suffered minor bruises was treated at the scene and released to go home by first emergency responders. The man who suffered critical injuries was transported to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce, Feola said.
The cause of the crash is currently unknown but an eye witness alleged that one of the vehicles involved in the crash was speeding and ran a red light before ramming into a car. Investigations are ongoing.
Traffic was backed up for hours after the crash. FHP’s traffic monitoring site showed all lanes were open hours after the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a Chrysler and a Sports Utility Vehicle, which ultimately, resulted in traumatic injuries.
