Law enforcement officials reported a multi-vehicle accident on FL-228 that left three people injured after a Toyota crashed into a SUV.
According to the news release, the crash happened when the 24-year-old female driver of a Toyota Corolla was traveling on FL-228 where she was involved in two different accidents.
The Toyota collided with the driver of a SUV at the intersection of Chaffee Road South. Both drivers escaped injuries in the collision and after the crash both drivers were standing by the two vehicles as they were checking the extent of the damage. As they did this a third car then came crashing into them, causing injuries to all three drivers.
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 first two drivers who were hit by the third car as they were outside of their vehicles sustained life-threatening injuries.
The third driver sustained only minor injuries and EMS transported all of the injured people to the nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Officials say the incident is still under investigation and no further details were released.
