The Sheriff’s Office confirmed that three people suffered severe injuries after two vehicles crashed into each other on Girvin Road.
The accident happened at the intersection of Girvin Road and Ashley Melisse Boulevard, JSO said. Eyewitnesses claimed the driver of the 2015 Hyundai Accent was traveling south on Girvin Road when the crash occurred. He was reportedly driving at a high speed and subsequently lost control of the car.
The other driver, who was with his wife, was traveling east of Ashley Melisse Boulevard. The Hyundai driver swerved at the intersection after losing control and crashed head-on with the other vehicle.
Due to the impact, both vehicles flipped. Incidentally, the Hyundai driver did not wear a seat belt when the crash happened, but the other driver and passenger did.
The couple sustained severe injuries. EMS treated them at the scene of the accident. Paramedics later transported the couple to the closest hospital for medical treatment.
The Hyundai driver suffered critical injuries to the head, neck and chest. Information from the medical center indicated that he is out of surgery now and recovering well.
Authorities said the accident remains under investigation.
