Several people were hospitalized following an accident between a car and an SUV along the intersection of SW St. Lucie West Boulevard and SW California Boulevard, authorities said.
Port St. Lucie Police and St. Lucie County Fire/Rescue responded to the crash and arrived at the scene shortly after the crash.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the traffic lights for east and west traffic on SW St. Lucie West Boulevard were green. A 1998 Toyota Camry was traveling west on SW St. Lucie West Boulevard making a left turn to travel south on SW California Boulevard. At the same time a 2008 Nissan Rogue was traveling east on SW St. Lucie West Boulevard and as the Nissan Rogue entered the intersection, its right front bumper collided with the Camry’s right front passenger door.
The front passenger of the Camry was pronounced dead at the scene. The 8-year-old girl from the Toyota Camry was airlifted to St. Mary’s Medical Center. A 14-year-old girl from the same vehicle was ground transported to Lawnwood Medical Center. The driver of Toyota Camry and the two occupants of Rogue were all transported by ground to nearby hospitals.
