Several People Injured In A Three-Vehicle Crash In Martin County

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office received numerous 911 calls in reference to a three-vehicle accident with multiple injuries near the intersection of Pahokee and Indiantown.

Palm Beach highway 119

During an investigation, it was determined that a 25-year-old man of Riviera Beach was westbound on Pahokee in his white 2010 Chevy van when he proceeded off the immediate roadway striking the north side guardrail, then over-corrected and proceeded into the eastbound lane of traffic on Indiantown.

Upon entering into the eastbound lane, he struck the driver’s side of a red Toyota Tacoma being driven by a 23-year-old man of Port Salerno. After being struck, the Toyota Tacoma vehicle spun completely around within the eastbound lane and came to rest facing west within the eastbound lane of the highway.

After striking the Toyota Tacoma vehicle, the White Van driver proceeded westbound in the eastbound lane where it struck a blue 2002 Dodge Ram head-on.

The drivers of the White Van and the driver of the Toyota Tacoma were the only occupants of their vehicles but the other driver was transporting his wife and three minor children.

All persons involved in the collision were transported to a hospital in Vero Beach by the Martin County EMS.

No deaths have been reported yet according to FHP.

The girl was identified by the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office as 11-year Bethany Henry.

Police said, the victim was leaving the theme park after a visit with her siblings when she slipped away from them and darted between two cars.

A spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol Department said, the 32-year-old driver of the truck had stopped to render aid and was distraught after the accident. Charges have not be filed against him yet.
