Firefighters arrived at the scene and toiled tirelessly to evacuate injured victims after a near-fatal crash in Belle Glade. The 15-year-old driver of a Toyota Rav4 SUV was involved in a head-on collision while traveling on the eastbound lane of Hooker Highway. The second vehicle in the crash was a white Nissan sedan, driven by a 34-year-old woman from Clewiston.

The two cars reportedly collided when the driver of the Toyota SUV lost control of his vehicle and crossed into the opposite lane.

Two passengers suffered injuries in the Toyota SUV, including a 17-year-old girl in the front seat. Upon arrival, paramedics found her in critical condition. Therefore, they rushed her to the ER for surgery with multiple fractures and internal injuries. She is still in critical condition.

The driver of the SUV also sustained minor injuries in the crash and paramedics transported the driver to the hospital for treatment. Meanwhile, the 34-year-old driver of the Nissan suffered head trauma and some broken phalanges. Paramedics placed her in an ambulance for transport to the hospital.

Police have yet to file charges; however, they said the underage driver will most likely be facing multiple charges in connection with the crash.

Emergency first responders cleared the debris off the highway and restored the free flow of traffic.
