Hobe Sound, FL—A deadly multi-vehicle accident occurred along Interstate 95 near Hobe Sound early Tuesday, May 25, 2010. The collision resulted in the death of a Pennsylvania woman and hospitalized one other person, according to information provided by the Palm Beach Post.
Reports indicated an unidentified 22-year-old female was traveling northbound in an Oldsmobile sedan when the wreck occurred. Her vehicle apparently crossed the center median and into the path of a Dodge pickup truck for unknown reasons. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) officials allegedly reported, “The impact split the car in half”.
Debris from the wreckage also subsequently hit a Ford F-150 pickup truck. A utility truck allegedly became involved in the motor vehicle collision (MVC) as well. Both the utility truck and pickup truck sustained minor damage. The crash occurred just before 8 a.m.
Emergency medical services (EMS) crews were seemingly dispatched to the scene. The 51-year-old Stuart woman who was driving the Dodge pickup truck at the time suffered non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Jupiter Medical Center for treatment. While the Oldsmobile driver suffered fatal injuries, no one else was hurt in connection with the violent crash.
All southbound lanes of I-95, approximately three miles north of the Palm Beach County Line, were closed pending preliminary investigations and accident cleanup efforts. The lanes were reopened before 12 p.m.
