The Florida Highway Patrol officials suspect alcohol was involved in a car crash that had killed the driver of a SUV and his 22-year-old passenger.
The crash had occurred near the intersection of Lakewood Park Drive and River Park in the St. Lucie County.
Police and the Florida Highway Patrol officials say the driver of the 2003 Ford Explorer was speeding north on Lakewood Park Drive and swerved to avoid a collision with slower-moving vehicles. The Explorer struck a pole on the southwest corner of Fort Pierce and White City.
The impact caused the Explorer to flip onto its passenger side and it struck a Honda Accord waiting for a red light.
St. Lucie County police authorities say the driver of the Honda Accord was not critically injured, but the crash killed the driver of the Explorer and his passenger. The Explorer’s driver was wearing a seatbelt, but his passenger wasn’t.
Police authorities say, St. Lucie County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy and the crash remains under investigation.
Police did not release the name of the driver or the passenger killed in the crash. The crash is still under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality.
