Semi Crash On I-95 in West Palm Beach Blocks Route
A crash involving two vehicles in West Palm Beach has left two people hospitalized. The crash has also caused traffic to back up in the area, the West Palm Beach Police Department said.
The crash took place when a woman tried to make an illegal U-turn and pulled in front of a southbound semi, police said.
The driver of the semi was not able to stop leading to a crash, according to police. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.
Police said two people were injured in the crash.
Both victims were sent to the trauma center at a hospital in West Palm Beach, officials said. No other occupants were injured in the crash, police said.
Officers said the first driver was cited for failure to yield right of way.
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.
This route is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with trucks are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
