Authorities reported two persons were hospitalized in an accident in Miami in which a car hydroplaned and led to two other crashes.
According to Officials, the driver of a SUV was driving on Franklin Avenue when it hydroplaned into the median. The SUV then spun around and collided with a light pole on the street. The pole fell and landed on an oncoming Chrysler minivan carrying three people.
The driver and passenger of the Chrysler minivan were transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The second passenger sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The driver of the SUV was also transported to the hospital with severe injuries.
Officials say the crash remains under active investigation. The road was closed for several hours while officials cleared the scene. It has since reopened.
The details of the individuals involved in the crash have not been released by the authorities. No other details were immediately available.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “The United States Department of Transportation has found that 75 percent of weather-related accidents involve wet pavements. Hydroplaning accidents are a common type of these accidents. Hydroplaning takes place when a vehicle slides uncontrollably on the wet surface of a road. Specifically, the vehicle’s tires lose contact with the road due to a thin layer of water that separates the road’s surface from the threads in the tires. If you or someone close to you has been hurt in a wet road accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Give our team of attorneys a call to find out what rights you have.”
