According to officials two drivers were taken to the hospital in serious condition after they collided on Southwest 137th Avenue in Miami.
According to reports the accident occurred when the driver of an Acura MDX was traveling westbound in the left lane on Southwest 137th Avenue in Miami.
The Acura traveled into the right side lane and came into the path of an oncoming Hyundai Elantra traveling westbound in the same direction. The Acura hit the Hyundai causing the Acura to swerve onto the right shoulder of the road before re-entering the right travel lane and colliding with the Hyundai a second time. The collisions caused both vehicles to leave the roadway and hit a tree line before they came to a stop.
Paramedics 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 both of the drivers were seriously injured in the crash. The drivers were taken to the nearby hospital by ambulance for further medical treatment.
Authorities did not give an official statement saying why the first vehicle lost control and they 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.”
