2 Semitrucks Crash On I-95 Near Palm Beach
A crash involving two vehicles in West Palm Beach has left two kids hospitalized. The crash has also caused traffic to back up in West Palm Beach, the Police Department said.
The crash took place when a woman who was driving a Mercedes Benz on West Palm Beach tried to make an illegal U-turn and pulled in front of a southbound Nissan Xterra, police said.
The driver of the Nissan was not able to stop, leading to a crash according to police. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.
Police said a 7-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy were injured in the crash.
Both children, who were secured in child seats during the crash, were sent to the trauma center at a hospital in Palm Beach, officials said. No other occupants were injured in the crash, police said.

The crash is still being investigated, police said.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victims were transported to the hospital for treatment.
