A young couple was in a wrong-way crash in Martin County when their motorcycle slammed into a Honda Accord, police officials said.
The 24-year-old motorcyclist, with his 20-year-old girlfriend seated behind him, was whizzing down SW Mapp Road in Palm City against the flow of traffic, cops said.
Suddenly, he crashed into a red Honda Accord heading north on the one-way street.
The couple was pinned under the van and suffered severe body trauma, cops said.
They were rushed to Jensen Beach Medical Center. Both were wearing helmets, cops said.
The 20-year-old girl’s mother was devastated.
“The doctor called me,” she told The Post through a translator. “He said there was a crash. He said she was severely injured and I needed to get to the hospital. I put on my clothes and went in a cab. When I saw her, I started crying.”
The 28-year-old van driver remained on scene.
No arrests were made as the Florida Highway Patrol Department are still investigating the main cause of the car crash, cops said.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
