Fort Lauderdale, FL—Two people were ejected onto busy Interstate 95 in a violent Monday, March 07, 2011 crash that caused one person to become lodged under a second vehicle. The automobile accident occurred along the northbound lanes of Interstate 95, just north of Sunrise Boulevard shortly before 7 a.m., reported the Palm Beach Post.
According to officials, a green Ford Explorer was traveling north on the interstate when for unknown reasons, the SUV veered off the travel lanes to the right and hit a guard rail. The impact caused the SUV to veer back to the left, crossing the northbound lanes.
At some point during the collision, two female occupants, the driver and passenger, were ejected from the SUV.
The driverless SUV kept traveling and hit a Hyundai. A passing Ford Crown Victoria ran over one of the women who was ejected onto the interstate.
Police officials say neither woman appeared to have been wearing their seat belts.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue officials reported that motorists used a jack to raise Crown Victoria to rescue the ejected victim. She was rushed to Broward General Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
The other woman was also seriously injured and rushed to the hospital. It was not reported if anyone inside of the Hyundai or Crown Victoria was injured in the collision.
A full investigation into the multiple-vehicle accident is underway.
