Law enforcement officials report a multiple vehicle crash on FL-867 that left several people injured.
Officials say they responded to an accident that occurred on FL-867 Highway southbound lanes where a total of six vehicles were involved. Authorities say the official cause of the crash was not known at the time of this report but they say witnesses speculate that speed was a possible factor.
Several units of police squad cars were dispatched to the scene where the six vehicles lay in varying degrees of damaged conditions in the wreckage. It was also reported that three ambulances were sent to the crash site.
EMS arrived to the scene of the accident soon after it happened to administer on-site first aid to the injured victims. Emergency crews reported that they all worked to evacuate the wrecks and move all the injured victims to the nearest hospital as soon as possible.
According to officials it took some time to extricate the occupants of the vehicles, especially those that had flipped on their sides, due to the sheer number of the vehicles that were involved in the accident.
Authorities say that the incident is currently under investigation and no other details were released to the public.
Glen Levine, 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.”
