Florida FFs Respond to Crash with Two Critical Patients


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Daytona Beach Fire Department Engines Four, Six, Seven, and Battalion One responded to the intersection of West International Speedway Blvd. and Williamson Blvd. around 5 p.m. Saturday, April 24 for a three-car motor vehicle collision involving six patients. Two of those patients were in critical condition.

Witness reports state that a white, mid-size sedan heading west was attempting to make a left turn onto Williamson Blvd. from International Speedway Blvd. when the driver turned into the path of a silver, full-size truck heading east, causing the truck to collide with another vehicle and sending both vehicles into a ditch.

Daytona Beach firefighters had to extricate three of the six patients from the vehicle before DBFD paramedics could access and check them for injuries.

There were a total of ten individuals, including four children, involved in the accident, but only six patients, all adults, were taken to Halifax Medical Center. The two patients listed in critical condition were believed to have been in the white mid-size sedan. The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
