A 26-year old Explorer driver involved in a three-vehicle crash that occurred when an SUV went off Interstate 95 and onto Village Boulevard in West Palm Beach is currently facing charges of driving without a license and careless driving said the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash had closed down the road during the rush hour. Two people have been rushed to the hospital as a precaution, FHP said.
FHP authorities said the crash started when a Ford Explorer that was driving southbound on Interstate 95 had lost control with no known reason. The car had crashed through a chain link fence into a village and struck a Toyota RAV4 head-on.
The crash pushed the Toyota into a Mercedes in another lane, according to FHP authorities.
The West Palm Beach Fire Rescue had taken the RAV4’s driver, a 43-year-old man, to a nearby hospital, he sustained few minor injuries, according to FHP.
The Explorer driver told police authorities he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. But the Florida Highway Patrol said investigations are still going on.
One other person was rushed to a nearby hospital.
Police investigators are urging anyone with relevant information relating to the crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Shuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Driving the speed limit on Florida’s Highways isn’t just the law. It may save your life by keeping you from being in an accident. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
