Emergency crews transported a teenager and his mother to the hospital, following injuries sustained in an accident on Northwest 9th Avenue.
According to the police, the accident involved two vehicles along Northwest 9th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. A witness said, a pickup truck rear-ended the car in the passing lane.
