A passenger was ejected through the windshield of a vehicle after it crashed into a Toll Plaza on Florida’s Turnpike.
Emergency services responded to a violent crash which occurred at a Toll Plaza on Florida’s Turnpike. A footage from the Toll plaza surveillance camera shows a SUV speeding towards the Toll booth and crashing into a concrete barrier.
The video footage also shows a male passenger flying through the windshield of the car and gliding on the asphalt before lying motionless beside one of the toll booths. The SUV was said to have burst into flames due to the impact of the crash. Smoke could be seen pouring from the hood of the car.
Police say all five occupants of the car survived. According to eyewitness accounts, it is a miracle no one was killed in the crash.
Firemen spent about an hour clearing the wreckage. Paramedics were also on scene to attend to injured victims and transport those with serious injuries to the hospital.
An officer on ground said the driver of the vehicle appeared to be fatigued at the time of the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving one vehicle which ultimately sent 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.
