2 kids suffer life-threatening injuries due to a reckless driver on a Florida highway

In a baffling Florida highway tragedy on Thursday, December 29 afternoon, a reckless driver struck four cars before stopping, injuring four people, two of them seriously.

The incident took place near State Road 54 at Lakepointe Parkway in Pasco County when three vehicles were stopped for traffic by Florida Highway Patrol. There was a 26-year-old driver who failed to stop and “took evasive action to avoid a collision.”

Unfortunately, he failed in his attempt and went on to hit a stopped vehicle, causing the stopped vehicle to crash into another. Indifferent to what he had done, the 26-year-old continued driving and slammed into the passenger side of a third vehicle. He then turned to the left and struck the taillight of another vehicle.

Police said two adults and two children suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital. The children, a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries.

Investigations are underway, and additional details will be released by Florida Highway Patrol as they become available.

It is our fervent hope that the injured will recover soon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.
