The Florida Highway Patrol released a statement about a crash that occurred when a driver slammed into the back of an FHP trooper’s vehicle.
Florida Highway Patrol officials said the crash happened on Appaloosa Trail southbound in Palm Beach County. The rear camera of the trooper’s vehicle captured it as it happened.
A Florida Highway Patrol trooper had stopped on the side of the road with his emergency lights on behind a disabled driver. A short time later, a 2012 Mercedes Benz driven by a 22-year-old man of Fort Lauderdale, was headed southbound on Wellington Trace.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the 22-year old swerved his vehicle onto the shoulder, struck a guardrail and careened into the back of the trooper’s vehicle on Appaloosa Trail.
The Mercedes driver sustained serious injuries and the Florida Highway Patrol trooper suffered an injury described as “non-incapacitating.”
The Florida Highway Patrol are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the accident or have more information to contact them.
