Police reported that five people were injured in an accident when a pickup truck rear-ended a car along a Lauderdale Manors Street.
The report says a pickup truck crashed into a car from the rear while slowing down for a traffic light. A Buick car was driven by a 33-year-old man, who reportedly applied the brake close to Northwest 19th Street intersection.
The Nissan pickup truck forcefully struck the car from the rear, according to the police report. The 27-year-old driver of the pickup truck was driving at a high rate of speed when the accident occurred.
According to the EMS report, there was also a passenger inside the car that was rear-ended. The passenger reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries and was rushed to the hospital, EMS added.
The drivers of the pickup and the car also suffered injuries. The crash victims were immediately taken to the hospital for treatment, police said.
An investigation is still ongoing, authorities said.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious multi-vehicle accident that led to three people sustaining critical injuries through no fault of their own. When motorists are distracted or speeding they put the lives of others at risk. When a negligent driver causes a crash, he or she could be held accountable for the accident. An injured victim should seek out an experienced accident attorney to help with the collection of compensation for medical care, losses and damages.”
