Police reported a severe accident on Buckingham Road when a car crashed into a disabled semi-truck.
Police reported that the crash occurred on Buckingham Road in Fort Myers. A 2013 Nissan Maxima crashed into a disabled semi-truck that was parked on the side of the road near Olympia Pointe. Officials reported the semi had broken down on the road several hours before the accident occurred.
Witnesses said that the Nissan was not driving at a high-speed, moments before the crash happened. By the time the driver of the Nissan noticed the truck, it was too late to avoid the collision though he was able to avoid a major impact.
There were three occupants in the Nissan car when the accident occurred. The driver and the passengers of the car sustained serious injuries from the crash.
Upon EMS crew’s arrival, the driver of the car was unconscious. Both passengers were immobile and seriously injured, according to a crew member. They have all been transported to a nearby hospital.
Police are at the scene coordinating traffic and investigating the crash.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that led to three 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.”
