West Palm Beach, Florida Collision Sends Three to the Hospital

A West Palm Beach, Florida collision sent three people to the hospital Saturday, sources report. The accident occurred in an unincorporated portion of the city on Beeline Highway. Three victims were taken to the West Palm Beach Hospital following the crash; information regarding their condition was not immediately available. The FHP is currently conducting an investigation to determine what caused the accident. The identities of those involved in the crash have not been released. It is unclear whether any of the victims will sue for damages.

Reports say the accident occurred near the turnoff of Haverhill Road onto Beeline Highway. The area is full of complex lane changes that are difficult to navigate for drivers not familiar with the roadway. Beeline Highway is an eight-lane expressway separated by a grassy median. Records indicate there are around 9,700 vehicles on Beeline Highway every day, and, between 1994 and 2008, there were an average of three vehicle-related fatalities on Beeline every year.

This latest accident occurred around 8:20 Saturday morning when two vehicles collided at the corner of Haverhill Road and Beeline Highway. The exact details surrounding that collision are unclear, including the number of vehicles involved. At least three people sustained injury. Paramedics rushed three victims to the West Palm Hospital with unspecified injuries.

It is unclear if either driver was at fault, or whether alcohol or inattention may have been a factor.

The incident occurred at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The woman was transported to the St. Mary’s Medical Center; details regarding her condition are unclear.
