The Turnpike Extension between Miami-Dade and Broward is shut down because of a serious accident. Personal Injury Attorney comments.
Tuesday, October 10, 2017: Those that normally travel this route are being advised to seek an alternate route as multiple crashes have brought traffic to a standstill. The accidents have cars scattered around the road, Florida Highway Patrol on the scene and numerous injuries.
The troubles started early Tuesday when a rollover crash of a dump truck near the southbound intersection with I-75 caused officials to close the Turnpike at NW 57th Avenue, causing delays back to NW 27th Avenue.
Police say several drivers attempted to get off the road by crossing over into the northbound lanes, causing chain reaction crashes that caused multiple lanes to be closed in both directions for a period of time.
Another crash involved four cars, sending one person to the hospital with minor injuries and another person having to be airlifted as a trauma alert. A second crash involved seven vehicles, including a gas tanker, in which two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Shuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. " This series of unfortunate accidents could have been avoided if drivers were paying attention and allowing police and rescue personnel to perform their jobs. This is one of the most traveled roads in the state of Florida. Please us extra caution in this area. ”.
