The Fort Lauderdale Police Department reported that three people are in critical condition following a multiple-vehicle accident on I-595.
According to law enforcement officials, a tractor-trailer rear-ended another tractor-trailer, forcing it off its lane. Consequently, the second tractor-trailer hit other vehicles on the highway causing a huge backup on I-595.
The report says four other vehicles across the lanes were involved in the crash. Fortunately, vehicles traveling behind the trucks managed to avoid the accident.
Police reported three sedans as well as an SUV were involved in the crash. The total headcount of the people involved in the multiple-vehicle accident was reported to be twelve.
EMS and police reported that eight people sustained injuries, except the three occupants of the two trucks. Paramedics transported the injured victims to the nearest hospital. Three people were reportedly in critical condition.
The accident remains under investigation.
