Police say there was a road closure following a crash at the intersection of 103rd street and Northeast Second Avenue in Miami that left two men injured with one having to be airlifted to the hospital.
Florida State Patrol released information regarding the crash that caused the road closure at the intersection of 103rd street and Northeast Second Avenue in Miami. The driver of a 2014 Ford Fusion was headed northbound when it met with a 2010 Ford Fusion and a 2017 Toyota Highlander that were traveling southbound on the same road.
The driver of the 2014 Ford Fusion reportedly lost control causing the vehicle to cross into the southbound lane where it sideswiped the 2010 Fusion causing it to spin and collide with the Highlander head-on. Authorities did not give an official statement saying why the vehicle lost control and they say the incident is still under investigation as they look into the actual cause of the crash.
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 paramedics airlifted the driver of the 2014 Ford Fusion to the hospital while the driver of the Highlander was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The driver of the 2010 Fusion was uninjured in the crash.
Police say the crash remains under investigation and no further details were released.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “Rear-end accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. Often, when a person is rear-ended they are completely taken off-guard and have not had an opportunity to brace for an impact. Rear-end accidents often lead to serious back and neck injuries. We hope that those involved receive the proper medical care.”
