Fire Truck Involved in Nine-Car Crash in Miami-Dade County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 28, 2020

A massive crash within Miami-Dade County brought numerous first responder crews together in order to try and assist those who were injured in the incident. While an investigation remains ongoing, preliminary reports from members of the Opa-Locka Police Department suggested that the accident happened on the night of Thursday, March 26th. It was close to 8:15 p.m. when numerous vehicles were traveling close to the intersection of Northwest 27th Boulevard and Northwest 135th Street. It is not clear if the accident took place at the intersection itself or if it happened somewhere very close by.

Among the nine separate vehicles which ultimately wound up being involved, a fire truck from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was probably the largest. What exactly happened remains under investigation, but it appears as though in the initial moments of the accident the fire truck collided with another vehicle. It is not clear if the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle or if the driver of the car was in some way responsible. Because of the limited information present in the reports, it is also not clear if the fire engine struck the rear of the car, the side, or if it was perhaps a head-on crash that brought the two vehicles violently together.

Due to the sudden nature of the crash, other drivers in the area were not able to avoid the damaged fire truck and car. By the time the tires stopped squealing, seven different vehicles had been immediately involved in the accident. It is not known how many people total were involved, but the reports did say that the crash resulted in at least two individuals becoming stuck within one of the cars. In order to free them, emergency crews were required.

Out of all the individuals who were involved in the crash, six were transported from the crash site to a nearby hospital. Out of this six, it is known that at least two were declared to be trauma alerts.

While the initial investigation into the incident was underway, all of the northern and southern lanes of Northwest 27 Ave along a stretch from Opa-Locka Boulevard to Northwest 132 Street were shut down.
