An investigation is underway after a crash along US Highway 1 in Broward left a 40-year-old man critically injured.
Authorities say the man was critically injured after he was run over by the driver of a tractor trailer along US Highway 1 in Broward. Police say the driver of the truck was stopped at an intersection behind a city recyclable truck. Both trucks then started moving forward and the man somehow got stuck underneath the truck’s left outer wheel.
Paramedics responded to the scene of the accident and administered first aid to the man before taking him to a nearby hospital. His medical condition is unknown at the time of this report. The driver of the truck was not injured in the crash and remained at the scene. Report says he fully cooperated with the officials.
The crash remains under active investigation. No further details were immediately released.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “Pedestrian accidents tend to lead to more significant injuries and fatalities because of the blunt trauma to the body. Unlike a car accident that has safety systems like airbags and seat belts that can make the difference in surviving a car accident. After an accident, families often have many questions about what next steps to undertake. Although nothing can undo the pain and suffering that victims go through after an accident like this, an experienced car accident attorney will help you fight to get the compensation you deserve.”
