Law enforcement officials say that Interstate 264 in Miami was closed for several hours due to a crash involving three vehicles that left a female driver critically injured.
Miami-Dade officials told reporters the crash occurred when a driver in a pickup truck rear-ended the driver of a Chevy Impala. The driver of the Chevy Impala reportedly lost control and spun into oncoming traffic.
A head-on collision between the Chevy Impala and another vehicle resulted in major damage to the Chevy and left the driver of the Chevy trapped in her vehicle with her arm partially pinned under the roof.
A medical helicopter was called to the scene as emergency workers and firefighters worked to extricate the female victim and prepare her for transport to the hospital. Reports say the rescuers had to cut her out of her seat belt to get her out of the damaged vehicle. The woman remains hospitalized with critical injuries while the drivers of the two other vehicles involved in the accident received only minor injuries.
Authorities did not give an official statement saying why the first vehicle rear-ended the Chevy and say the incident is still under investigation as they look into the actual cause of the crash.
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.”
