Palm Beach Officer And Two Others Hurt In Horrific Car Crash
A Palm Beach County police officer was involved in a multiple-vehicle accident, according to Florida Highway Patrol officials.
The department had tweeted that one of its officers was involved in a four-car crash that resulted in the closure of Wellington between West 54th Street and Davie Road for several hours.
Three people, including the officer, were hurt in the crash, according to a Florida Highway Patrol Sergeant. They were hospitalized but the extent of their injuries is not known.
Two cars were eastbound on Wellington while two cars, including the police cruiser, were headed westbound. The officer was on a regular patrol and not in pursuit, the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
The driver in the eastbound curb lane changed lanes. The car pushed the other eastbound car over the double yellow line into a car going in the opposite direction. That car, in turn, struck the police cruiser and pushed it into a pole, police said.
Palm Beach County police tweeted just after that Wellington road was reopened.
The cause of the crash, however, is still under investigation, as police authorities and the Florida Highway Patrol officials are trying to find out what triggered the crash, the post reported.
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. 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.”
