An upstate man miraculously survived crashing his Porsche into a tractor-trailer in White City. He was pulled from the wreckage with a broken hip and other non-life threatening injuries, a spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The 55-year old man was headed toward White City in St. Lucie County when he totaled his convertible sports car wedging it under the semi truck, sources said.
The truck driver dragged the car several hundred feet before he was able to stop, police sources said.
Emergency workers rushed to the crash and had to cut open the car to get the 55-year old out.
He wreaked of booze and had an open bottle of vodka on the passenger’s seat, sources said.
Both the truck driver, who suffered minor injuries, and the Porsche driver were taken to a hospital in St. Lucie County where they were being treated, authorities said.
The Porsche driver was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and being in possession of an open alcohol container, police said.
The driver of the tractor trailer has not been charged with a crime.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious two-vehicle accident involving a Porsche and a tractor-trailer, which ultimately, caused critical injuries to a person.
