Miami Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of a crash that left a driver hospitalized at the intersection of North Miami Avenue and Northwest 35th Street in Miami-Dade County.
Witnesses said the driver’s Corvette initially struck a parked car near Northwest 22nd Street and First Court. Shortly after, the Corvette hit several other vehicles near Northwest 34th Street and North Miami Avenue before crashing into a light pole and coming to a stop.
One of the owners of the cars that was damaged, Rene Desir, said he chased the Corvette and reported that the driver was going at least 100 mph. He said he did so because he needed the tag number and that the police would have to be called in.
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 firefighters had to extricate the vorvette driver who was trapped in his car. Paramedics then took the man to the Jackson Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Authorities were seen questioning the driver in the corvette and did not say why the driver lost control. They are still looking into the incident and will release more information pending the completion of the investigation.
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.”
