10 vehicles in pile-up crash leave 4 seriously injured

An accident on Interstate 95 in Broward County locked up traffic and left four people needing emergency help as they were transported to nearby trauma centers. The accident was a massive pile-up crash that involved 10 vehicles. The wreck occurred around 8 a.m. and the police are investigating the pile-up. Three lanes on the interstate had to be shut down to allow crews to address the crash.

At this time, it is unknown how the crash occurred. Few other details are available, in fact. The extent of the injuries suffered by the four people taken to the trauma centers is unknown. All we can really do in response to this crash is speculate as to the cause, and use this story as a platform to advocate for road safety and legal prudence when considering a car accident.

Pile-up accidents like this are often chain reaction crashes, and many of the participants have little time to react, if any, to what is unfolding in front of them. But the initial collision that triggers all of that may have been caused by a distracted driver, a drunk driver, a fatigued or sleepy driver, or just a careless driver. All of those circumstances make the driver negligent, and a lawsuit could be filed by the victims to hold the negligent driver responsible.

To everyone out on the road: please drive safely. If you are too tired, pull over. If you are driving, don't pull out your cellphone. And never, ever get behind the wheel of a car if you have alcohol in your system.
