Three People Injured In Royal Palm Beach Crash
Three people were injured in Royal Palm Beach due to a car crash involving two vehicles.
According to a PBSO report, a 30-year-old man of suburban West Palm Beach was driving westbound in an Infiniti car on Okeechobee Boulevard near Wildcat Way.
PBSO said it appeared that the driver was traveling at high speed when he lost control of the vehicle and traveled across the westbound lanes of Okeechobee Boulevard.
The car swerved sideways before it violently slammed into another vehicle – a red 2014 Toyota Corolla. The impact of the collision disabled the Corolla with a huge dent on the passenger door.
The Infiniti continued to slide sideways across the sidewalk and grassland before it was halted by a palm tree on the north side of Okeechobee Boulevard.
The Toyota driver and his passenger, a 23-year-old of Tampa suffered serious injuries. Both victims were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Fire Rescue responded and transported the victims to the hospital. The passenger suffered a dislocation of the shoulder joint and rib fracture while the driver suffered a concussion. The Infiniti driver sustained some injuries as well. However, his condition is unknown at the time of this report.
Okeechobee Boulevard near Wildcat Way will remain closed until authorities are able to clear the scene.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Whenever you are behind the wheel of a car, please make sure you are paying attention to all road signs and signals. If you are in an accident where someone didn’t follow the posted signs or signals, please call me so that we can discuss your rights.”
