A 63 year old man was seriously injured in a chain reaction crash involving a DUI on West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a crash involving a man who was under the influence of a recreational drug while traveling along West Atlantic Avenue. The DUI driver was behind the wheels of a Ford Mustang on the eastbound lane when he crashed into a Toyota hatchback which was traveling in the westbound lane of West Atlantic Avenue.
According to Police reports, the Mustang did not stop after the first collision, but crashed into a second vehicle before coming to rest on the right shoulder of the road.
Emergency services spent hours trying to evacuate the 63 year old driver. The Toyota hatchback was badly damaged in the crash. Witnesses say they had to cut through metal to get to the injured victim.
A woman in the Toyota sustained critical injuries and was rushed to a local hospital. The driver of the Mustang only sustained minor injuries in the crash. The driver in the third vehicle was not injured.
No charges have been filed yet, but the Florida Highway Patrol are conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash.
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 sent one person to the hospital with critical 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. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
