A front seat passenger in a Buick Sedan was airlifted after sustaining severe injuries in a car crash on Kings Highway in Vero Beach.
Emergency services were on ground after a crash involving a Buick Sedan close to Carter Road. The driver of the Buick Sedan was traveling on the southbound lane of Kings Highway when he lost control, skidded of the road and crashed into a tree a couple of feet from the road.
There were two occupants of the vehicle, a 54 year old man and a 45 year old woman. They both sustained severe injuries in the crash.
The Buick Sedan was found in a wrecked state when Firemen arrived and one of the passengers, the 45 year old woman, was trapped in the vehicle. Firemen were seen working to evacuate the trapped woman for over an hour. She was finally rescued and attended to by paramedics on the scene.
