Driver Causes Crash On I-95 Near Indiantown Road
Palm Beach County, Fla.— The Florida Highway Patrol says a reckless driver is to blame for a crash on I-95 near Indiantown Road.
The wreck blocked all southbound lanes. They have since reopened.
According to FHP, a patrol car was one of the cars involved in the crash.
Authorities say an off-duty Fort Pierce police officer was on his way home when he saw a reckless driver in a 2001 Mercedes on I-95 south near Gatlin Blvd. That officer alerted Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP Troopers eventually found the vehicle going south on I-95 and pursued for 20 miles.
Troopers tried to box in the car but the driver would not stop.
The Mercedes and FHP vehicle collided causing damage to both cars, FHP said.
The driver, an FHP Trooper, and trainee were taken to Jupiter Medical Center and are all expected to recover.
The driver, a 65-year-old man from Douglasville, Georgia, will be charged with reckless driving and felony fleeing and eluding, FHP said.
