Six people were injured, including two children ages 7 and 5, in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Jupiter.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, the wreck occurred on I-95 southbound north of the Indiantown Road exit.
A 2001 Mercury Villager minivan, driven by a 41-year old, of Stuart, Florida was traveling southbound on I-95.
A 2012 Kia Sorento sport-utility vehicle, driven by a 24-year old, of Fort Pierce was also traveling southbound on I-95 in the center lane.
Florida Highway Patrol said tread separation occurred on the minivan, causing the driver to lose control. The vehicle veered to the left and struck a concrete barrier wall.
The minivan rotated off the wall, back into the southbound lanes into the path of the Kia Sorento, which struck the right side of the minivan.
Investigators are still trying to determine how many victims were ejected from the vehicle and if anyone was wearing seatbelts.
Three of the victims were airlifted to a hospital in Martin County. Two victims were transported to St. Mary’s Hospital and one was admitted at Delray Medical Center.
The southbound lanes of I-95 were closed for the investigation. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
