4 Killed, One Left Critical After Fiery Martin County Car Crash
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that a Port St. Lucie woman was traveling the wrong-way on 1-95, when her Jeep SUV had slammed into a Chevrolet Silverado.
A passing motorist had stopped to lend assistance at the horrific accident scene but was only able to free the 41-year-old Port St. Lucie woman after the crash had happened.
Both vehicles busted into flames after the head-on collision. Four other people were trapped inside the 1982 Chevrolet, including two adults and two children. All four occupants of the Chevy lost their lives in the 1-95 crash. The Florida Highway Patrol says, the Chevrolet was traveling properly in the northbound lanes before the wreck.
A Port St. Lucie man arrived at the accident scene after the car accident. He saw the Chevrolet fully engulfed in flames and he suspected that the Jeep was on the verge of bursting into flames.
The passer-by and two others pulled the woman from her vehicle just before the Jeep burst into flames. The woman pulled from the Jeep was flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute’s Trauma Center in Fort Pierce after the wreck. She suffered critical injuries.
FHP is urging anyone with relevant information concerning the crash to contact the Martin County Police Department.
