Wrong Way Crash Leaves Two With Serious Injuries Along U.S. Highway 1
Three people sustained serious injuries in a wrong way crash along U.S. Highway 1 in Hobe Sound.
Emergency services worked to clear the wreckage following a crash along U.S. Highway 1 in Hobe Sound. According to Police reports, a white Nissan Altima was traveling northbound in the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 1 when it collided with a tractor trailer.
The Nissan was mangled beyond recognition as a result of the crash. Emergency crews worked to evacuate 34 year old male driver from the wrecked car, cutting through metal to get to him. After two hours, the driver was rescued from the wreck and transported to the hospital for multiple fractures. He is in a critical condition at the moment.
A second occupant of the Nissan, a 24 year old man, was said to have exited the vehicle mid-motion, shortly before impact. He sustained some bruises and a dislocated shoulder. Paramedics attended to him on the scene. He was later taken to the hospital for treatment.
The road was closed for about three hours before traffic was restored again.
There is no information on why the driver of the Nissan Altima was driving against oncoming traffic. Officers of the FHP were at the scene 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 sent two people to the hospital with serious 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.”
