Five Indiantown teens were killed when their car veered into oncoming traffic and struck an SUV, FHP said. Four other people were seriously hurt in the smashup in Indiantown in Martin County.
Four of the teenagers, two boys and two girls, died at the scene. The fifth, the young man who was driving, died at a local hospital in the county. A fifth teen in the car was in critical condition at Port Salerno Medical Center. All of the teenagers attended the same High School.
The SUV’s driver, 63, and his 22-year old female passenger, were in serious condition. One of the fatally injured teens was identified by his heartbroken dad.
“The family is grieving right now,” the father said. The surviving teen was identified by friends and a relative. “We have no idea what’s happened yet,” the surviving teen grandmother, told The Post.
Both the Martin County police department and the Florida Highway Patrol officials said the crash is still under investigation as no one is certain of what must have really lead to the crash. Anyone with additional information relating to the crash is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at once.
