A Martin County crew tour bus crashed in Jensen Beach injuring three passengers, authorities confirmed.
Three members of a 12-person production team on board were hospitalized in Delray Medical Center for minor injuries and released shortly thereafter.
The monitor engineer, production manager, and audio technician were the individuals injured, Florida Highway Patrol Officials reports.
According to the local station, the bus was traveling south toward Jensen Beach when the driver started to choke on his coffee. The vehicle drifted into the northbound lane and then veered off the road, hitting a few trees, which prevented it from plunging into a nearby creek.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Officials, investigations are still ongoing to determine if the bus driver was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. No charge has been filed yet. Florida Highway Patrol officials have also refused to release the identities of those injured in the accident.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a tour bus near Jensen Beach, which ultimately, landed three people in the hospital. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck.
