Three-Car Collision in Cocoa Beach Leaves One in Critical Condition

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on February 22, 2017

A Cocoa Beach accident between three cars is still under investigation as the Cocoa Beach Fire Department and the Cocoa Beach Police Department work together in order to discover just what happened to make these vehicles collide with one another and who, if anyone, holds the primary responsibility. As of this moment, no further information has been released regarding the accident, which occurred on Tuesday night at the intersection of State Road 520 and the Cocoa Beach Causeway. The intersection, which is only a short drive east from the Cape Canaveral Hospital, was shut down following the incident, which took place shortly before 9:00 in the evening.

The initial report from the scene indicated that there had been a fatality, but a later update clarified the statement saying that, as of yet, no individual had been declared deceased as a result of the crash. Seven people were involved, and all of them sustained injuries. Four of these individuals refused to be taken to a hospital, while the other three were rushed to medical facilities.  The mistaken report that claimed the accident resulted in a fatality was due to the fact that one of the victims, an unnamed 20-year-old man, was immediately transported to the Holmes Regional Medical Center under the category of “Trauma Alert.”  His injuries are considered life threatening enough that the Cocoa Beach Police Department has issued a statement indicating that, even though there have been no deaths as of yet, the accident is still considered to be a homicide investigation.

As well as no updates regarding the crash victims identities, there is no news as when the Eastbound Cocoa Beach Causeway will reopen. Because the circumstances surrounding the accident are still so unclear, it may be some time before the authorities feel as though they have gathered all available information from the scene of the incident.

Multi-car collisions are often the most deadly due to the number of individuals and moving metal parts involved, and they can frequently be the most difficult to parse out exactly what happened. This does not change the fact that these accidents, like most automobile crashes, are caused by the carelessness of only one or two individuals.
