One injured in a Florida traffic accident involving a sedan and a tractor-trailer

A Florida traffic accident between a sedan and a tractor-trailer near Greene street, Hollywood at about 8 AM on Thursday, January 26 snapped off the sedan’s roof and trapped the sedan driver inside. 

Hollywood Firefighters helped pull the victim from the sedan which appeared to have smashed into the trailer and had its roof ripped off.

Police sources report that the victim was transported to the Memorial Regional Hospital for trauma care. The identity of the victim was not disclosed by the investigators.

Hollywood Police spokesperson Christian Lata said that the driver was incredibly lucky to escape with relatively minor injuries following an accident of this scale. 

The road remained closed for a long time near the crash scene and commuters were directed to switch to alternative routes. 

At this time, little information is available to report as the crash is still being investigated and more details shall be released when available.

Our prayers are with the injured sedan driver as we wish the individual a speedy recovery.

This Florida traffic accident could have been far worse

In nearly 40% of cases, car accidents lead to major injuries in Florida. Florida traffic violations are most often caused by unsafe driving practices and overspeeding, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Three out of ten documented collisions are believed to be triggered by seemingly minor mistakes made by negligent drivers.

It is important to identify how or why an incident occurred when you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, especially if someone else was at fault.
