FHP say 11 migrants and one trafficker have been injured when the SUV that was carrying them overturned on a highway in Delray Beach.
FHP said the SUV, which was carrying the migrants from the border, had previously not stopped at a police checkpoint, but there was no chase.
The car caught fire but all occupants managed to get out.
All 12, the driver and migrants from other countries, were taken to a local hospital. Hospital officials said one is in serious condition.
The crash took place on the same road and nearly the same location where another car carrying 10 migrants and a trafficker collided with a truck killing all of the car’s occupants.
FHP authorities say one migrant has died and 200 others have entered the county when a large group of migrants attacked a fence.
A representative of Palm Beach County government says the migrant appears to have died from a heart attack. Officials are waiting for an autopsy to confirm the cause of death.
The representative says at least three other migrants were injured when some 300 migrants tried to climb the high border fence.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious fiery accident involving migrants, which ultimately, resulted in injuries. We wish the victims a speedy 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 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.”
