It was reported that a 2013 Volkswagen Beetle rolled over after being struck by a 2016 Lexus IS 350 on Shelbyville Road.
According to an eyewitness statement, the Beetle pulled into the passing lane without caution. The Lexus was speeding in the passing lane when it forcefully struck the Beetle from behind. This led the 72 year-old driver of the Beetle to lose control and swerved suddenly. The police reported that the Beetle rolled over.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victims were transported to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the Beetle sustained serious injuries. He was confirmed to have brain injuries on arrival to the hospital. This was following the fierce crash and placed on life support.
It was also reported that the driver of the Lexus and his passenger were injured. The 32-year-old driver lost control of the car as it veered off the road, flipped, and crashed. The car’s front side was damaged and the wheel severely smashed. The car crashed on the side of the road and violently struck the guardrail. It was reported that he had neck and back injuries from the crash.
Drivers along this route should be patient or find alternative routes.
