Venice James White 32, of Riviera Beach remained at Delray Medical Hospital in Palm Beach County, just days after the wreck in Delray Beach, according to a Florida Highway Patrol Sergeant.
Venice’s relative, who was in a Kia sedan, was involved in a wreck on the interstate. He said, Venice got out of the car to check on the relative. A 1998 Honda Civic driven by a 36-year-old woman of Martin County, was traveling south on I-75 at the time, according to a news release from the FHP.
Officials said, down pours in the area prevented the 36-year-old from seeing the Kia initially.
“He did not see it until the last second,” a FHP official said.
FHP officials said, the 36-year old had swerved to avoid the car, but instead sideswiped it and hit Venice in the process. The car rotated counter-clockwise before stopping.
Authorities said, Venice landed behind the Kia after he was struck, suffering a severed leg. The FHP and the Martin County Sheriff’s Office provided tourniquets to help stabilize Venice’s leg, according to the release.
The 36-year-old remained on the scene. FHP said, charges in the crash are still pending.
