An 87-year-old man was killed in a car wreck, authorities said. The man and his son, a 61-year-old man died at the scene of the crash that happened in Martin County according to police authorities. Both were from Mexico.
Investigators said, the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road and hit a SUV, killing two passengers and leaving the driver severely injured.
A Martin County Deputy said, the three men had to be extricated from the GMC truck, which was pulling a trailer carrying a race car and other equipment.
The driver of the SUV was reported in critical condition, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The driver’s name was not released. The deputy said, he was transported to a hospital in Martin County for treatment of injuries including several broken bones.
The Florida Highway Patrol said, it was still investigating the incident and had not determined whether to cite the driver.
Investigations are still ongoing and FHP suspects drugs or alcohol to be part of the wreck, however, that hasn’t been proven yet. The names of the victims are still withheld.
