A family of four was involved in a car crash on their road trip along US Route 95, Lantana.
A couple and their two teenage boys were hospitalized after their SUV collided with a guardrail on US Route 95. The family which was on a road trip from Philadelphia ran into some car trouble when the brakes of the vehicle failed to respond.
According to the Police, the SUV was speeding when the 45 year old father of two who was driving the vehicle noticed some traffic ahead. He applied the brakes to slow down, but the brakes were not responsive.
The driver swerved to avoid traffic and ended up colliding with a blue BMW before impacting the guardrail along the right shoulder of the road. The impact sent the car tumbling as it came to rest on its side.
The driver of the BMW sustained minor injuries from the crash and was treated by paramedics on the scene.
Emergency services were on scene as they evacuated the victims from the wreck. The mother of the two boys suffered serious injuries while the father had a mild concussion. They were all taken to the nearest hospital for treatment. The teenage boys, who were in the backseat of the SUV, also sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital in stable condition.
It is still unclear why the SUV had a malfunction with its brakes. The police are conducting an investigation into the crash.
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 left four people with serious injuries. We wish the victims a quick recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident.
