Five People Injured in Car Crash at Intersection in Boca Raton
Five people suffered injuries after a car crash at the intersection of Lyons Road with Clint Moore Road in Boca Raton.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene of a crash involving two vehicles on Lyons Road. Consequently, paramedics had their hands full with the number of injured persons from the crash. The accident left five people injured including two children and caused a major blockage on Lyons Road.
Authorities said the crash occurred when a 2004 Chrysler 200 Sedan traveling southbound on Lyons Road collided with a 2009 Pontiac G6 approaching from the westbound lane of Clint Moore Road. Subsequently, the Chrysler 200 hit the Pontiac at the driver’s side, inflicting major damage to both cars.
Paramedics rushed the driver of the Pontiac G6 to the hospital with severe head trauma. Officials said the Pontiac driver is in stable condition at the moment.
Two children in the backseat of the Pontiac sustained multiple injuries including a neck injury and a few fractures. Additionally, the front seat passenger in the Pontiac suffered injuries in the crash; paramedics transported her to the hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, emergency crews transported the driver of the Chrysler 200 to the hospital for a neck injury due to whiplash. Police are investigating the state of both drivers, a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol said. Police believe traffic camera footage will be helpful in determining whether a red light violation contributed to the crash.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a terrible accident involving two vehicles which ultimately sent four people to the hospital with serious injuries. Whenever children are injured in a crash, it is sad and disconcerting. We wish all the victims a speedy recovery. Additionally, we hope investigators can quickly determine the cause of the accident.
