Law enforcement officials say that a pregnant woman was taken to a local hospital after a three vehicle accident on Southwest 3rd Avenue.
Police say the accident occurred when a bus loaded with students from the Unicaribe College collided with a car on Southwest 3rd Avenue, which then hit the third vehicle that had a pregnant woman driver.
Police said, the bus was heading west on Southwest 3rd Avenue when a Lyft car suddenly pulled out in front of the bus. The bus driver, that was carrying 17 students at the time of the crash, could not avoid a collision and hit the Lyft car knocking it into another nearby vehicle. The driver of the third vehicle was a pregnant woman that was injured from the impact.
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 the pregnant woman was taken to a local hospital. She notified first responders that she was not feeling good and EMS felt further medical observation and testing was necessary.
None of the students in the bus were injured and all 17 were placed on a second bus while the first was taken for repairs. The Lyft driver was not injured in the collision.
No charges have been filed yet and the accident is still under investigation by law enforcement authorities.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious two separate accident that sent a pregnant woman to the hospital. We advise drivers to always drive with caution and to use seat belt at all times. Sadly even minor accidents can cause severe injuries. Many times when accidents like these happen people do not know who to turn to for help. It is best to consult with an experienced car accident attorney.”
