According to reports, five people sustained various injuries in a multi-vehicle accident on Airport Expressway in Miami after a semi-truck loses control trying to pass another vehicle.
According to the police, a driver in a red semi-truck lost control of the vehicle while passing another semi-truck on Airport Expressway that led to a multi-vehicle crash. Police reported that the crash pileup involved two semi-trucks, a SUV and a pick-up truck. It was reported that the red semi-truck, driven by a 45-year-old man, was traveling at a high rate of speed before the accident happened.
The red semi-truck sideswiped the second semi as it attempted to pass it in the left-hand lane causing a chain-reaction of collisions. Two other vehicles, SUV and the pick-up truck, were hit as they were traveling in the right-hand lane on the road, police said.
There were two occupants in each of the two semi-trucks, the SUV and the pick-up truck, police said. EMS arrived to the scene of the accident soon after it happened to administer on-site first aid to the injured victims in the incident. Emergency crews reported that only one of the occupants in one of the semi-trucks was not injured, while the other five people involved in the accident sustained various injuries.
Officials say the incident is still under investigation and no further details were released.
