In an unusual and unfortunate turn of events, an accident took place on Monday that sent three individuals to the hospital, including a Florida State Trooper. The initial report suggests that the trooper, who has yet to be named, was traveling in Orange County on State Road 528 when they noticed a car then attempting to make an illegal U-turn. The trooper was driving an official Florida State Trooper SUV which was also a K-9 unit.
Three people, including an Orange County sheriff deputy, were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries following a Sunday afternoon Orlando car accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the three car crash occurred when the deputy was attempting to make a U-turn at an intersection near the Kirkman Road and State Road 408. As he was responding to a call, his squad car had both its lights and sirens on as it made its turn in the intersection.
A motorcycle rider suffered serious injuries recently when a car making a u-turn crossed into his lane causing the 45-year-old rider to slam into the hood of a 2000 Mazda. The Orlando Sentinel claims that the man injured in the Florida motorcycle accident was driving his motorcycle south on Southwest 142nd Avenue when the Mazda making a u-turn struck him at the intersection of Thoroughbred Court.
