WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A three vehicle crash in West Palm Beach has sent two Florida Highway Patrol troopers and a paramedic to the hospital.
FHP officials said the emergency crews were responding to a prior crash involving two vehicles on Interstate 95 on Sunday night. They closed one lane of traffic. A driver who was merging into another lane lost control and hit three cars. One trooper was hit after getting out of his car, another was injured sitting in his patrol car and a paramedic was struck by debris.
Their injures are not believed to be life-threatening.
The Palm Beach Post reports that the driver who lost control was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The crash blocked four lanes of the busy interstate, snarling traffic for several hours.
