An off-duty FHP officer was seriously injured when he was hit by a car, FHP authorities said.
An officer with the FHP and a 31-year-old FHP officer had pulled their respective vehicles to the right shoulder in the eastbound lane of the Palm Beach County.
The drivers were outside of their cars when a 2013 Ford sedan barreled onto the shoulder, Palm Beach County police said.
A 29-year-old man who had been driving a 2010 Honda, was standing near the other driver’s 2012 BMW when the third vehicle crashed into his car just past exit 53, causing it to hit the 31-year old officer’s car and subsequently strike the officer.
A Palm Beach County police spokesman could not immediately confirm initial reports that the drivers were outside their vehicles following an earlier collision.
The 29-year-old officer was airlifted to a hospital in Palm Beach County with serious injuries. The other officer was uninjured, cops said.
The 33-year-old driver of the Ford was taken to a Palm Beach County Hospital with minor injuries.
No criminality was immediately suspected, cops said. The investigation is ongoing.
