Five people have been seriously injured after a crash on Interstate 95 near Hobe Sound, the Florida Highway Patrol reports.
Authorities say that a 32-year-old man of Port St. Lucie was injured on I-95 after reportedly losing control of the 2000 Chevrolet C1500 he was driving, cruising over the median and colliding with three southbound cars. The 32-year-old had been driving north, authorities said.
His three passengers also sustained serious injuries in the wreck, according to PBSO and State Troopers. Neither the 32-year-old nor his passengers were wearing seat belts, according to records.
His passenger, an 18-year-old, is in serious condition at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. Another 21-year-old also sustained critical injuries in the wreck and a third passenger, a 17-year-old girl, was critically injured, authorities said.
The 21-year-old man’s pickup collided with a 2019 Infiniti Q50, driven by 54-year-old man of Bonita Springs, and a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by a 23-year old. Neither was injured.
The pickup also hit the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro that a 33-year-old man from Jupiter was driving. He sustained serious injuries in the wreck. Records indicate he was wearing seat belts at the time of the wreck.
Authorities are investigating whether alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
The crash blocked traffic on I-95 for several hours.
