The Florida Highway Patrol has reported that multiple people have been left injured after a truck crashed into the median on Buckingham Road.
FHP said, the truck driver was heading to a dump site when the accident occurred. Officers said the crash might have happened as a result of a mechanical fault, but that remains under investigation.
The truck driver lost control of his vehicle and striking a light pole, leaving debris all over the road, troopers said.
Oncoming vehicles who tried to swerve from hitting the debris collided into one another. Reports say the number of vehicles and people involved in the crash have not been confirmed.
Troopers said, paramedics brought all the injured parties to a nearby hospital for treatment. Their current condition is unknown.
Identities of victims have not been released to the press as at time of writing this report.
Officers said, the driver also suffered serious, but not life threatening injuries and has also been transported to the hospital for treatment.
The road has been closed for road crews to clear the vehicles and debris. Commuters are warned to expect delays and advised to take an alternative path until the area is clear.
Mark Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious multi-vehicle accident that led to several 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.”
