Report says five people sustained various injuries in a multi-vehicle accident on East Sunrise Boulevard after a semi-truck loses control trying to pass another vehicle.
A driver in a red semi-truck lost control of the vehicle while passing a semi-truck on East Sunrise Boulevard that led to a multi-vehicle crash, according to the police. The crash pileup involved two semi-trucks, an 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 reportedly 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.
