A male pedestrian and his Welsh Terrier were injured after a collision on Southeast Floresta Drive in Port St. Lucie.
The accident occurred when two vehicles collided along Floresta Drive. The impact of the collision sent one of the vehicles skidding towards the direction of the pedestrian and his dog.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, one of the vehicles involved, a 2004 Chevy truck, was in the northbound lane of the road when it strayed into the southbound lane, colliding with a blue Honda Civic.
The driver of the Honda Civic was unable to regain control of the vehicle as it spun towards the left shoulder of the road and crashed into the pedestrian. The pedestrian, a 24 year old man was walking his Welsh Terrier on the sidewalk when the incident happened.
Passersby rushed to render assistance to the injured victim who was severely injured in the crash. Paramedics later arrived on the scene and transported the injured man to the hospital. He is said to be in a stable condition. The Welsh Terrier was found underneath the car after the accident. It survived the collision with minor injuries.
The driver of the Honda Civic sustained minor injuries in the crash. Police are investigating the driver of the Chevy truck who was not hurt in the crash.
Investigations are still ongoing.
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 one person to the hospital with serious injuries.
