Authorities closed Southeast 10th Street in the immediate aftermath of the crash so that a medical helicopter could touch down at Zion Lutheran school, according to the Sun Sentinel. Emergency personnel transported a 14-year-old teenager and a three-year-old child to Broward Health Medical Center due to critical injuries that they sustained in the crash.
Two adults also required transport to the same medical facility. Emergency personnel transported four other adults to Broward Health North with non-life-threatening injuries. Three other adults required transport to local hospitals classified as trauma alerts.
The circumstances surrounding this six-vehicle crash were not immediately known, although the investigation is ongoing.
