A Lauderdale Lakes crash leaves 9 people hospitalized with severe injuries.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Northwest 31st Avenue and 41st Street, near Boyd Anderson High School. At least two cars were involved in the accident.
According to officials, there was light rain in the area around the time of the collision. However, authorities have not confirmed weather as a factor in the crash.
The collision caused a white sedan to be terribly damaged in the middle of the intersection and sent another car, a black sedan, crashing into a bus bench thereby causing extensive damage to the front of the vehicle. There was no sign that any one was seated on the bench at the time of the crash.
Officials said 6 young children, all under the age of ten, sustained injuries. It is unclear how many children and adults were in each car.
First responders transported the 9 victims who sustained injuries to Broward Health Medical Center. According to officials, one of the adults is in critical condition.
Authorities have not released any personal details regarding the victims involved in the crash at this time.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine, comments: “Accidents with injuries to small children can be a parent’s worst nightmare. Often overlooked is that most child seats are improperly installed and sometimes can contribute to more serious injuries. Most fire and police departments offer installation services of child safety seats If you or a family member has been injured in a traffic accident due to someone else’s negligence, we recommend that you speak to an experienced accident attorney that can guide you through the legal process and protect your rights.”
