Eight people died and two were injured in a fiery car crash in St. Lucie County near the tourist hotspot of Fort Pierce, the St. Lucie County Police Department said.
In the accident, two cars and a motorcycle collided on the highway between Fort Pierce and River Park, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Witnesses said a 1-year old and 4-year old were killed in the accident, and that others who died ranged from 36 to 76 years old. The wounded survivors were ages 16 and 18.
The highway along the Fort Pierce Avenue is typically busier than usual at year-end when tourists flock to beaches for vacations.
Earlier three residents of the St. Lucie County were killed when their bus crashed and flipped over on a highway in the Port St. Lucie where many popular tourist sites are located.
The Florida Highway Patrol Department said, the cause of the crash is still under investigation and urges anyone with relevant information concerning the crash to contact the St. Lucie County Police Department.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
