Hypoluxo, FL (November 10, 2018) - A three car crash on US 1 left one man dead and on person injured on Friday, November 9th.
The crash took place in the southbound lanes of US 1 around 6:50 am. Police say that the events began when 33 year old Ever Maximiliano Zelaya was traveling on US 1 and struck a median in the center of the road. The impact caused Zelaya to be ejected from the vehicle. As Zelaya was lying in the roadway, a second vehicle stopped to assist. The second vehicle, however, was sideswiped by a third vehicle as it was stopped in the roadway. The third vehicle then struck Zelaya before it overturned.
Zelaya died from his injuries while the driver of the third vehicle was transported to a hospital in serious condition. Police continue to investigate the crash. There is no word at this time on whether any charges will be issued.
Serious car accidents take place several times each day across our state. In this case, it is unclear exactly why the third vehicle struck the second and then struck Ever Zelaya. Officers will have to determine whether the driver of the third vehicle could have made reasonable efforts to avoid the crash from occurring. Any negligence stemming from this crash will result in the negligent driver being responsible for injuries sustained by the others involved.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the family of Ever Zelaya in this tragic crash. We hope that anyone hurt is able to have a full and complete recovery.
