Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-95 near Palmetto Park Road

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Crews are working to remove the wreck of a multi-vehicle accident involving a semi near Boca Raton.

According to a report, a rescue crew was at the scene of a serious collision involving multiple vehicles. The wreck happened in the northbound lanes of I-95, just before Palmetto Park Road.

A semi-truck appeared to be jackknifed on the highway, according to drivers in the area. I-95 near Palmetto Park Road was “currently impassable and driving conditions are poor,” authorities said.

The cause of the crash was unknown. The speedometer was retrieved from the semi, which police said shows it was speeding because it was stuck at 80 MPH. Investigators have not concluded whether drugs or alcohol may have been a factor.

FHP was asking the public to avoid the area.

There were no details on the type of injuries. Police were expected to give an update once the scene was cleared.

Comments:

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to distracted driving.  “In my many years as a Personal Injury Lawyer I’ve helped many victims that were injured because someone was distracted and crashed into their vehicles.  If you’ve been injured by someone because they weren’t paying attention to the road, please call me so I can help you get compensation for your damages.”

Woman, 57, Dies After Turnpike Crash In Palm Beach Gardens

PALM BEACH GARDENS — A 57-year-old West Palm Beach woman died following a three-vehicle crash on Florida’s Turnpike north of PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

FHP did not name either the woman or the make or model of her sedan, citing a policy it adopted last year about withholding the identities of crash victims.

The wreck took place just after noon at mile marker 112 in the turnpike’s southbound lanes. Traffic was stopped, and two of the three vehicles stopped with it. The woman’s sedan did not, striking the rear of an SUV, then traveling southwest onto the road’s shoulder, FHP said.

The impact of the crash sent the SUV into the path of a second sedan and then into a concrete barrier on the side of the road.

The woman died at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, FHP said.

The driver of the SUV, a 59-year-old woman from Pembroke Pines, sustained serious injuries. The driver of the second sedan, a 29-year-old man from Sunrise, had minor injuries.

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to distracted driving.  “In my many years as a Personal Injury Lawyer I’ve helped many victims that were injured because someone was distracted and crashed into their vehicles.  If you’ve been injured by someone because they weren’t paying attention to the road, please call me so I can help you get compensation for your damages.”

1 In Hospital, 1 Dead After Crash

A 33-year-old man suffered major injuries after a crash on the Florida Turnpike that took the life of his passenger.

According to the authorities, one man is in critical but stable condition at the hospital and suffered 3rd degree burns on his back, neck, ear, and part of his face. “He is in the burn unit of the hospital and will be heavily medicated for the next few days,” he said.

The accident happened in the westbound lanes just west of Palm Springs. He had stopped his 2007 Honda in the left lane. It was rear ended by a Nissan driven by a 24-year old man, according to the FHP.

FHP Sergeant, Mark Wysocky, said the impact was so severe that it caused the Honda to catch on fire and explode. The driver, who was critically injured, was pulled from the car by a man and another driver. The passenger died at the scene.

“It’s not known why the vehicle had stopped on the highway,” said Wysocky. A man with minor injuries was reportedly treated at the hospital and released.

Doctors will be watching the other victim closely because of how susceptible he is to infections in this stage, according to the authorities.

Florida Highway Patrol and other emergency crews are conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
