MIAMI – A medical transport van crashed into a barrier wall Monday morning in Miami, injuring the passengers.
The crash occurred just after 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Charter Club.
Miami Department of Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll Jr. said the driver claimed she was trying to avoid hitting a dog when she lost control of the Wellmax Medical Centers van and struck a barrier wall in the parking lot.
Carroll said five of the six passengers in the van were taken to area hospitals to be treated for minor injuries. A sixth passenger declined to go to a hospital. Their ages range from the 50s to the 80s.
The driver of the van was evaluated at the scene and questioned by Miami police.
