Three vehicles suffered extreme damage after a multi-vehicle collision at the intersection of SE Willoughby Boulevard and SE Pomeroy Street in Stuart.
The Florida Highway Patrol responded to a call after a multiple-vehicle crash at the intersection of SE Willoughby Boulevard with SE Pomeroy Street. The driver of a black Toyota Highlander collided with two other vehicles at the northeast segment of the intersection.
The accident began when the Toyota Highlander, which was traveling on the westbound lane of SE Pomeroy Street, approached the intersection at a high speed. At the same time two vehicles, a 2010 Honda Accord and a Nissan Skyline GTT, traveled southbound along SE Willoughby Boulevard. Subsequently, the Highlander slammed into the Honda Accord from the driver’s side.
The Honda Accord was propelled into the path of the Nissan Skyline as a result of the initial impact, leading to a second collision.
In addition, the driver of the Honda Accord was trapped-in by the mangled door of the car. Firemen worked to evacuate him for over an hour. Consequently, the Honda driver sustained multiple injuries; emergency crews transported him to the hospital in critical condition.
A front seat passenger in the Accord also sustained injuries in the crash; she suffered a broken arm and a few lacerations. Paramedics treated her on the scene and then transported her to the hospital in an ambulance.
The driver of the Nissan Skyline suffered head trauma from the crash; emergency crews transported him to a specialist hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, the driver of the Highlander suffered minor injuries and paramedics attended to him on the scene.
Police have yet to file charges; they suspect alcohol may be a factor in the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This multi-vehicle collision involved three vehicles and ultimately sent four people to the hospital with serious injuries.
