Vero Beach, FL (April 29, 2019) - Two people suffered injuries in a crash that took place on Monday, April 29th. The crash happened at the intersection of 26th Street and 44th Avenue around 2:45 p.m.
According to Sgt. Fred Jones of the Florida Highway Patrol, a Ford pickup was pulling a carry-on trailer on 26th Street when the trailer dislodged and veered into the oncoming lanes. A Ford Edge traveling eastbound then collided head-on with the loose trailer. Two people inside the SUV were injured and one was taken to a hospital for treatment. A second person was treated at the scene.
Investigators determined that the truck driver failed to properly secure the trailer. Charges are pending at this time.
Approximately 250,000 people will be hurt this year in Florida injury crashes. Being involved in an injury crash is scary, stressful, and can leave you feeling like your life has been upended.
After the accident, you may receive calls from an insurance adjuster looking to settle your case quickly and cheaply. The insurance company is in business to make money for themselves, and they do not have your best interest in mind. You should never agree to sign an injury settlement until you have received assistance from an experienced Florida car accident attorney.
