Two Dead, Four Critical After A Six-car Chain Reaction Crash In Martin County
Two people were killed and four people hurt in a six-car chain reaction crash in Martin County, FHP said.
The crash began when a 31-year-old man, driving a 2011 Chevy north on the Jensen Beach Expressway near Exit 12, rammed into the side of a 2012 Acura sedan.
The 37-year-old woman behind the wheel of the Acura then lost control and slammed into the dividing median causing it to flip over to the southbound side of the roadway, where it smashed into a 2015 Jeep SUV, driven by a 52-year-old man.
The domino effect continued when a Ford pick-up truck driven by a 32-year-old man slammed into the overturned Acura, according to police
A 2011 Honda sedan, which was also heading south on the expressway, was then struck by debris from the collisions, FHP said.
The Chevy continued north on the expressway, where it ultimately struck a 2012 Toyota SUV, according to police.
A 28-year-old man and a 14-year-old teenager were riding in the Acura when it flipped over. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Another man who was riding in the Chevy was also hurt. The 31-year-old was taken to a hospital in Delray Beach in stable condition.
The drivers of the Honda, Toyota and the SUV were also transported for medical attention.
No arrests had been made, as the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
