Four people lost their lives in a fiery head-on collision on Interstate 95 while one person is in a critical condition at the hospital, FHP reports.
The Florida Highway Patrol says that a Port St. Lucie woman was traveling the wrong way on I-95 when her SUV slammed into a Chevrolet Silverado. A passing motorist had stopped to lend assistance at the horrific accident scene but was only able to free the 41-year-old Port St. Lucie woman after the crash had happened.
Both vehicles burst into flames after the head-on car accident. Four other people were trapped inside the Silverado, including two adults and two children. All four occupantslost their lives in the 1-95 crash.
First emergency responders arrived at the scene of the accident shortly after the accident happened.
Fire rescue crew pulled the woman from her vehicle just before the Jeep burst into flames. The woman pulled from the Jeep was flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute’s trauma center in Fort Pierce after the wreck. Authorities say that she suffered critical injuries.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious fiery accident involving two vehicles that resulted in the death of four people. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victims can have a closure. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, 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.”
