Four-Vehicle Crash Blocks I-95
All southbound lanes on Interstate 95 were blocked following a four-vehicle crash.
Officials in Fort Lauderdale said that the crash happened around 8:50 p.m. near Broward Boulevard. All four vehicles involved in the accident sustained heavy damage in the crash.
Five people were transported from the scene to Broward Health Medical Center, all listed with life-threatening injuries.
Highways and Interstates are often the site of not only heavy traffic but also traffic that is travelling at high speeds. This is a deadly combination when a collision occurs. Highway and Interstate accidents are more likely to involve multiple vehicles, in part because of the higher speeds and the higher number of cars on these roadways at any given time. Interstate and highway accidents are far more likely to involve permanent injury and fatalities.
No matter how much care you take on the road, accidents can happen at any time. Sometimes the process of trying to sort out just who may have been at fault in an accident on a busy highway or freeway can be a challenge. It is a good idea to hire an attorney, especially when there are injuries or even death involved in a collision. Even if there are no charges involved at the scene of the accident, this does not mean that there might not be charges filed after investigators examine the case more thoroughly.
When drivers choose to drive distracted, inebriated, drive under the influence of prescription or illicit drugs or are just plain tired out on the freeways, the results can be potentially even more deadly than on any other kind of street. When drivers lose control of their cars under these circumstances, they will often cause accidents involving not only their own vehicle, but also other vehicles around them. These types of accidents can cause serious injuries and even fatalities. Every year, victims of such accident are rushed to the hospital with head and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, burns and other life threatening injuries. The recovery time from these kinds of accidents are very painful and these injuries can take a long time to heal.
