A Multi-Car Crash Kills One

On the road, especially on major highways, speedways, and turnpikes, the actions–or the mistakes–of one person can inflict pain and suffering on many around them. The majority of multi-vehicle accidents begin with a single misjudgment. That one cause leads to various effects, setting into motion a chain of events that can affect–or even end–countless lives.

For example, a 60-year-old driver caused a multi-car crash on I-75 last Wednesday morning. This person was driving south and had two others in the SUV with her. For an unknown reason, this SUV hit the guardrail, sending the speeding vehicle out of control.

The SUV was flung across the southbound lanes, colliding with other vehicles on the way, eventually reaching the paved median. There, the SUV slammed into a wall near Miramar Parkway.

As a result of this collision, one passenger was taken to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead. The driver and a child were also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Other effects came from this accident, though. Other vehicles were involved, though there were no other reported injuries. All the southbound lanes of I-75 had to be closed for several hours as the scene was being cleared. Traffic was diverted off the Interstate at the Miramar Parkway exit or onto the express lanes.
