Many people believe SUVs offer greater protection for their passengers in car crashes, but this is not always the case. When high speed is involved, there is a likelihood of injuries for passengers in most vehicle types.
A recent crash reported in Miami shows just how devastating a crash between two SUVs can be. The Miami Herald reports that one person died and two others were seriously injured when the driver of an SUV lost control of his vehicle and crashed into another SUV traveling in the opposite direction. The second SUV spun out and crashed into a light pole, narrowly missing a Miami-Dade bus.
Officials described the crash as extremely violent with debris littering the street. It happened at approximately 11 a.m. on Northwest 22nd Avenue.
Miami Fire Rescue says the driver of a black Chevrolet TrailBlazer simply lost control of the vehicle and hydroplaned into the northbound lane. The vehicle that the TrailBlazer hit was carrying a family of five. There were three children in the car at the time.
The impact ejected two people from the TrailBlazer. One man died on the scene while another is in a critical condition at a nearby hospital. The mother of the family in the other SUV sustained serious injuries and is receiving treatment at Ryder Trauma.
The crash is still under investigation, and police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward with information.
