Seven people have been hospitalized following a four-vehicle accident at the intersection of Northeast 15th Street and US-1.
According to a police spokesperson, the four-vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of Northeast 15th Street and US-1. The accident involved a Toyota Highlander, a Ford Focus, a Nissan Altima, and a Honda Civic and had nine total occupants. Emergency crews transported a majority of the crash victims to the hospital after the crash happened.
The spokesperson said the 26-year-old driver of the Toyota SUV stopped abruptly, causing an oncoming Ford Focus to rear-end the SUV. The Ford was driven by a 24-year-old man, the spokesperson added. Consequently, the incident caused a chain reaction crash with two oncoming cars; the Nissan car and the Honda car.
The EMS crew arrived at the site of the multi-vehicle collision in record time. Seven people suffered injuries in the accident. EMS transported the four drivers and the passengers in the Toyota and Ford to the nearest hospital.
The injuries sustained were of varying degrees of severity. Presently, authorities have not disclosed the condition of each of the injured victims.
