Florida Trooper Almost Killed During a Three-Car Collision in Palm Beach County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 10, 2021

Authorities with the Florida Highway Patrol working within Palm Beach County are currently requesting the public’s assistance with the identification of a driver and vehicle that was involved in a three-car crash Thursday afternoon along Interstate 95 that almost claimed the life of a state trooper who was helping a stranded motorist.

According to the first-hand account from Florida State Trooper Dominic Alexandre, it was approximately 3:15 p.m. when the officer pulled over to the shoulder of the road to assist the driver of an SUV that had suffered a blown tire on I-95 near the northbound section of the Hypoluxo Road exit ramp. Shortly after he started to fix the flat tire situation, dashcam footage from his state-issued patrol car showed a silver pickup truck suddenly entering the scene and slamming into the sport utility vehicle, narrowly missing the SUV’s female driver and the FHP officer.

Further investigations into this accident determined that the silver pickup truck was one of three vehicles involved in a chain-reaction crash just a few feet away from the broken-down SUV. At this time, investigators believe that the initial incident occurred when a sedan collided with a white pickup, which caused the truck to then sideswipe a silver pickup truck. The force of impact from the first accident propelled the second pickup truck into a third vehicle, the disabled SUV, at a high rate of speed.

The driver of the SUV was transported to JFK Medical Center for additional medical treatment for the minor injuries she suffered during the accident. Thankfully, no one else sustained any type of injury during the multi-vehicle pileup.

It’s a miracle. I was able to hear the screeching sound of the pickup truck, and I glanced to my left and I had a split-second decision to make,” said Florida State Trooper Dominic Alexandre in a statement to the press on Friday.

As the Florida Highway Patrol continues their search for the driver and sedan involved in this accident, they are also asking for the public’s help. If you have any relevant information pertaining to this case, please contact your local police department, *FHP (*347), or the Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.
