A man in his late twenties was killed in a rear end collision along Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach.
According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 27-year-old man from Lauderhill died in a crash. The accident happened on Interstate 95.
Emergency services were at the scene of the crash that left debris on the southbound shoulder of Interstate 95.
Authorities say the victim of the fatal crash was driving a 2015 Kia Optima on the southbound lane of interstate 95 when he pulled to a stop on the right shoulder of the road just north of Okeechobee Boulevard. A 2012 Infinity Q50 which was approaching on the southbound lane drifted out of its lane and crashed into the rear of the Kia, spinning the vehicle in the opposite direction.
The driver of the Kia sustained serious injuries in the crash, and was rushed to St. Mary’s Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. A front seat passenger in his car, a 31-year-old from Fort Lauderdale, was not hurt in the crash.
The driver of the Infinity , a 26-year-old man, also sustained minor injuries in the crash. No information has been given to explain why the Infinity drifted out of its lane. The Florida Highway Patrol is still conducting an investigation into the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately led to the death of one person, and left others with 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. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
