One person was killed in a series of collisions involving three vehicles in West Palm Beach.
The accident which left three vehicles badly damaged occurred on North Congress Avenue, claiming the life of a woman in her mid twenties.
Florida Highway Patrol officers were on scene and two lanes of the road were closed for investigations by traffic homicide detectives.
According to authorities, the driver of a Toyota minivan was on the southbound lane when she made a sudden U-turn into the northbound lane. This led to a partial collision with a Volkswagen hatchback which was on the northbound lane as it was sent skidding to the east shoulder of the road.
A black Volvo sedan, which was also traveling on the northbound road, was caught off guard by the skidding Volkswagen hatchback causing it to sideswipe that Volkswagen into a ditch.
The female driver of the Volvo sedan was killed on impact, while the driver of the Toyota minivan suffered serious injuries and is said to be in a stable condition. The occupants of the Volkswagen hatchback were not hurt in the crash.
Paramedics were on the scene and Emergency First Responders spent hours clearing the wreckage due to the extensive damage and debris.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving three vehicles, which ultimately led to the death of a woman leaving others with injuries. We wish the victims a quick 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 car, motorcycle, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer.
