Three people were seriously injured in a crash along North Main Street in Belle Glade.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, A grey Volkswagen Passat was on the northbound lane of North Main Street when it attempted to pass a Toyota Tundra truck from the left.
Another vehicle was driving in the southbound lane while the Volkswagen was trying to pass the truck. The Volkswagen immediately swerved to the right in an attempt to avoid a head on collision with the approaching vehicle, ramming into the Tundra in the process.
The Tundra veered off the road and skidded to a stop, while the Volkswagen lost control and continued off the road until it crashed into a tree.
The driver of the Volkswagen was badly injured. Police say he was not wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred. He was rushed to the hospital for multiple fractures suffered from the crash.
Eyewitnesses say the front seat passenger of the Volkswagen was trapped in the wreck until emergency services arrived. A female eyewitness claimed that they had to saw through the wreck to access the crash victim.
The driver of the Tundra was also injured in the crash and had to be rushed to the nearest hospital.
The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting a full investigation into the cause of the crash.
