Police said a 26-year-old woman lost control of her vehicle on US-1 when driving at a high speed.
The female BMW driver allegedly lost control of her 535i while traveling at a high speed on US-1. The BMW rear-ended a 2014 Honda Odyssey, which was traveling with six occupants.
Upon impact, the minivan driver lost control, police added. The Honda then careened into the side of the road after being struck by the BMW.
Emergency Medical Services responded to the crash on US-1 and transported nine people who suffered injuries to a nearby hospital. Officials reported that the occupants of the minivan sustained serious injuries.
The woman who drove the BMW and the two passengers of the car sustained serious injuries as well. Although authorities reported varying degrees of injuries among the victims, both drivers sustained the most severe injuries.
Police are investigating the crash.
