Law enforcement officials in Miami have reported a head-on collision crash near the intersection of Grossman Drive and Southwest 18th Street that left the driver of a vehicle critically injured.
According to the news release by authorities at the scene of the crash, they say the crash happened when two vehicles collided head-on as they were driving at the intersection of Grossman Drive and Southwest 18th Street.
Witnesses say the driver of a Nissan SUV was driving in the wrong lane as it was headed northbound in the southbound lane. The driver of a second vehicle was traveling in the southbound lane when it was hit head-on by the SUV. Officials did not say why the first vehicle was driving the wrong way and they say the incident is still under investigation.
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 impact led to the hospitalization of the two passengers in the second vehicle with the driver of the vehicle being critically injured. EMS also said the driver of the SUV was injured as well and was taken to the hospital, but no information has been released on that driver’s condition at the time of this report.
Investigators are still trying to determine the factors that led to the crash and say no further details are available.
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.”
