2 pedestrians struck in Miami after car crash

Wet roads in Miami are a recipe for auto accidents. With more drivers on the road during the holiday season as well as the heavy downpours we have been experiencing, automobile and/or truck accidents are bound to happen.

Recently, WSVN reported on an accident that involved two pedestrians. Here’s what they had to say:

“The driver of a black sedan was possibly heading the wrong way, according to officials, and crashed into another car before spinning out of control. The vehicle then hit a light pole and injured two pedestrians standing near the pole before coming to a stop.

The accident happened at the intersection of Northeast First Avenue and 11th Street, in front of a large group of witnesses.

“Yeah, he was just out of control, it looked,” said one witness, Eric Landau, “and I’m pretty sure he hit another car first, and he was trying to flee the other car, I believe. Then he hit a pedestrian.”

Officials said  two witnesses kept the the driver from running off.

The pedestrians who were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in serious but stable condition. They remain hospitalized Monday afternoon.

It is unknown what charges the driver will be facing. He was given a field sobriety test and taken in for questioning.”
