Three Palm Springs women have been critically injured following a crash in suburban Lantana, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Mary Nick 34, Helen Orlando, 54, and Rose Orlan, 23, were critically injured after the 2006 Honda Accord that Orlan was driving crossed the median into oncoming traffic on Military Trail and was struck by a 2001 Ford F-150.
The Honda was traveling southbound on Military Trail north of Lantana Road when Orlan lost control for unknown reasons, Florida Highway Patrol Officials said.
The Accord spun counterclockwise and crossed the center median into northbound lanes.
The front of the Ford pickup smashed into the Accord’s passenger side.
A 55-year-old driver, also of the Palm Springs area, was driving the F-150 and sustained serious injuries, Palm Beach Sheriff Office said. He remained at Delray Medical Center, according to paramedics.
A passenger in the pickup was not injured.
The crash shut down a portion of Military Trail for several hours. Rescue workers were forced to cut two of the victims out of their vehicles. Anyone with relevant information concerning the cause of the car crash is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
