Two vehicles were badly wrecked when a car ran into a tow truck in a chain reaction crash on Southern Boulevard in Royal Palm Beach.
According to the spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol, a car was about to be loaded onto the flat bed of a tow truck along the eastbound lane of Southern Boulevard as a black Honda CRV sped towards the vehicle, lost control, and slammed into the side of the tow truck. The impact caused the Honda to ricochet towards the inner lane of the road resting on its side.
Another vehicle, a blue Ford Sedan which was also approaching from the eastbound lane, screeched for some seconds before colliding with the Honda, pushing it further down the road.
Skid marks could be seen on the asphalt at the scene of the accident, as paramedics struggled to save the crash survivors. The driver of the Ford Sedan was not hurt in the crash, but the driver in the Honda sustained severe head trauma and had to be rushed to the nearest hospital for treatment.
A police officer who was attending to the tow truck was just able to get out of the way seconds before impact.
Emergency services were seen clearing the wreckage to ensure a free flow of traffic on the debris ridden lanes.
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 sent one person to the hospital and injured two others. 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. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
