Authorities said a two-vehicle collision sent three people to the hospital at the intersection of 17th Street and 8th Avenue in Vero Beach.
Emergency first responders were called to the scene of a two-vehicle crash at an intersection in Vero Beach.
A grey Volvo Osmium traveled on the northbound lane of 8th Avenue and a white BMW sedan traveled on the southbound lane of 8th Avenue from the north end of the intersection. Subsequently, the Volvo made an attempt to turn left onto westbound 17th Street and ended up directly in the path of the BMW sedan.
The BMW struck the passenger side of the Volvo Osmium, causing terrible damage to both cars. Two people suffered injuries in the Volvo sedan. The front seat passenger had his right arm stuck in a crumpled door, and a firefighter had to cut through the metal to free his damaged limb. Paramedics rushed the driver and front seat passenger to the hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, the driver of the BMW sustained minor injuries in the crash; paramedics transported the driver to the hospital for treatment.
Emergency services spent over two hours clearing the wreckage from the busy intersection.
Authorities have not determined the cause of the crash; however, police have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash. Investigations are still ongoing.
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 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. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
