A 36-year-old Wellington woman remained in critical condition after she was injured in a multi-car crash that shut down a stretch of Interstate 95 in the Boynton Beach area for many hours, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Justina E. Peters was injured when her 2007 Scion was involved in one of two crashes that had occurred along the stretch of northbound I-95 in southern Palm Beach County.
The crashes, which involved seven vehicles, happened south of the Bridge Road exit, near the truck weigh station in Boynton Beach.
According to an FHP report, a 65-year-old of Port Salerno was driving south on I-95 when he lost control of his 2003 Toyota Tundra pickup, went across the grass median and into the northbound lanes. A 31-year-old of Palm Beach Gardens was driving north and tried to avoid the Toyota, but crashed into Justina Peter’s car, the report said.
Justina was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach.
The 65-year-old and his 33-year old passenger were taken to Boca Raton Medical Center in Palm Beach with minor injuries. The 31-year-old also had minor injuries, but she did not go to the hospital, the report said.
Investigators are trying to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the crash. According to reports made by the Florida Highway Patrol no charges had been filed.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, 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.”
