A street racer was involved in a head on collision with a SUV along North Military Trail in West Palm Beach.
Police are investigating a crash involving illegal street racing activities along North Military Trail. Authorities say the crash occurred when three vehicles were said to be engaged in a street race along the northbound lanes of North Military Trail.
One of the cars, a 2014 Audi A3, spun out of control and crossed the median into the opposite lane and crashed into a 2011 Fiat Freemont SUV. The 19-year-old driver of the Audi A3 was said to have swerved out of the way to avoid being sideswiped by one of the other racers when he lost control of the vehicle.
Two occupants of the Fiat sustained critical injuries in the crash. The driver had a neck injury and paramedics suspect internal injuries were highly probable. She was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
A front seat passenger in the Fiat was also injured in the crash. She had multiple lacerations and a dislocated shoulder. Paramedics attended to her on the scene and placed her in an ambulance for transport to the hospital.
The driver of the Audi A3 sustained multiple injuries in the crash. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
The other car involved in the street race was absent from the scene when emergency services arrived. An eyewitness said they drove off after assessing the wrecked vehicles. Authorities say the identities of the other drivers will soon be released in order to facilitate their arrests.
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 three people to the hospital with serious injuries.
