Five Teenagers Injured in Rollover Crash on Florida’s Turnpike
Five teenagers were among the injured victims in a rollover crash involving an SUV on Florida’s Turnpike, Hobe Sound.
Police are investigating a car crash on Florida’s Turnpike which left five teenagers with serious injuries. One of the occupants of the car, a 14-year-old girl, was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.
According to police reports, the driver of a gold Toyota Sequoia SUV was traveling northbound on Florida’s Turnpike with five passengers in the vehicle when he lost control and drifted between lanes before rolling over a couple of times. The vehicle finally came to rest against a tree in the median strip.
Police say the driver of the SUV might have dozed off for a minute before losing control of the vehicle. A front seat passenger in the SUV, a 15-year-old boy, was hospitalized for multiple fractures, while three teenagers in the backseat were also hospitalized for multiple injuries.
The 14-year-old girl who was ejected from the vehicle sustained multiple bruises and a broken femur. Paramedics placed her in an ambulance for transport to the hospital. Meanwhile, the driver of the vehicle sustained multiple lacerations and fractured his left arm.
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 is a serious accident involving one vehicle which ultimately sent six people to the hospital with serious 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.
