A construction worker was seriously hurt when a driver rammed into him in a chain-reaction crash in St. Lucie County, Florida Highway Patrol said.
A yellow taxi hit the front driver’s side of a red Toyota Camry in Fort Pierce near East 85th Street, causing the Camry to mount the sidewalk and smash into the 28-year-old worker at St. Lucie County Christian Church, Florida Highway Patrol said.
The collision caused the taxi to spin 180 degrees, according to Florida Highway Patrol officials.
A 35-year-old salesman at a building across the street said he darted over to the stricken worker.
“The worker tried to lift his right foot,” the salesman said. “I saw the bones sticking out at the back of his leg. A Florida Highway Patrol Officer said, ‘Put your leg down. The bone is popping out.’ He put his leg down, but he was still groaning.”
The driver of the Camry was scared out of her mind, the salesman added.
All of the injuries were non-life-threatening, officials said. Five people were transported to Delray Medical Center.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
