Emergency first responders were called to the scene of an alleged wrong-way crash involving a Volkswagen Sedan and a Dodge Truck on eastbound 45th Street. Officers of the Florida Highway Patrol were at the scene of the accident carrying out investigations.

According to police reports, the driver of the Volkswagen Golf was traveling in the wrong direction on eastbound 45th Street when it collided head on with a Dodge truck that was approaching in the eastbound lane. The impact sent the Golf into the path of a silver Audi Sedan which rammed into the Golf before coming to rest.

The driver of the Golf was trapped in the wreckage for a while before firemen arrived on the scene to free the driver from the mangled frame of the car. He sustained multiple fractures from the crash and was rushed to the nearest hospital in an ambulance.

The driver of the Dodge truck suffered a neck injury in the crash. He was also taken to the hospital for treatment. No one else was hurt in the crash.

Officers of the Florida Highway Patrol could not disclose the reason for the wrong-way violation, although it was mentioned that alcohol might be a factor in the crash.

More information will be provided as investigations progress.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving three vehicles which ultimately sent two people to the hospital with injuries. We wish the victim a quick recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a car, motorcycle, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
