In serious car crashes, people can be badly hurt or killed. People who are moving too quickly in their vehicles or not paying attention to the road can end up causing car crashes that leave multiple people struggling to survive.
That’s what happened in this case involving two vehicles that were reportedly “destroyed” on Interstate 95. The crash happened at around 11:25 a.m. when a GMC Envoy and a pick-up truck collided.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue reported that six people were hurt, and one had to be sent to the hospital on trauma alert. One victim had to be extracted from the vehicle after the collision. In total, six people were hurt, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Miami Fire Rescue, who both responded to the scene.
There’s no report yet on what caused the collision, but images show two vehicles that appear to be totaled. Fortunately, everyone involved has survived thus far.
Crashes like this are avoidable. If you’ll be traveling on an interstate, remember that vehicles are traveling quickly and that drivers need more time to respond to changes in movements. If you need to stop or slow down, do so slowly and over time when possible. If you need to merge, use your turn signal and let others know with enough time to merge safely.
If you take steps to make yourself safer on the roads, you will be doing your part to help prevent crashes. If you’re hit, you can pursue a claim and hold the other driver responsible for the actions that led to your pain and suffering.
