A passenger was ejected from a vehicle during a crash along 20th Street on State Road 60 in Vero Beach.
According to emergency services, three people were injured in the crash which had an unbelievable survival story.
A Black Mercedes Benz was involved in a side swipe collision with a silver coloured Toyota Rav4 SUV. Police say the driver of the Mercedes Benz was on the eastbound lane of State Road 60 when the Toyota SUV joined the road directly into the middle lane of the eastbound road.
The driver of the Mercedes Benz swerved to avoid the collision and lost control of his vehicle. This caused the car to rollover a couple of times before coming to rest on the center divider.
A 27 year old passenger was ejected from the Mercedes Benz mid-roll during the crash.
Paramedics on the scene say he was lucky to have survived after landing on the asphalt. He sustained critical injuries and was rushed to the hospital.
Two other occupants of the Mercedes were also rescued from the crash by emergency first responders. They sustained multiple injuries and were taken to the nearest hospital.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash. There was no information on the identity of the Toyota SUV driver at the time of this report.
