Five-Vehicle Wreck in Neptune Beach, FL, Leaves Three with Serious Injuries
NEPTUNE BEACH, FL. – As reported online in a news story from news4jax.com, a five-vehicle collision February 1 in Neptune Beach, Florida, left three people with serious injuries. The crash occurred in a chain-reaction style, starting with two vehicles colliding in front of a restaurant.*
At approximately 11:30 p.m. on February 1, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo was traveling on Atlanta Boulevard and crashed into a Chevrolet Traverse in front of Ragtime in Neptune Beach. It is not clear what caused this initial collision, but the crash set in motion another chain of events that eventually involved three more vehicles.
After impact with the Traverse, the Monte Carlo rotated and struck a Nissan (model not reported). One or more of the three vehicles then hit two parked vehicles. The makes and models of the parked vehicles were not reported.
“I was eating dinner with one of my friends at Hawkers in Neptune Beach,” said Mary Scott Moore, whose car was one of the parked vehicles involved in the crash. The other parked car involved was Moore’s friend’s vehicle. “We didn’t know originally that we had parked next to each other because both of us drive separate cars. We parked across the street near Ragtime, and when we walked out around 11:30, immediately, we saw this big cloud of smoke.”
The driver of the Monte Carlo, 29-year-old Mr. Davis, and an unidentified passenger were injured and transported to a local hospital. The driver of the Nissan, identified as a 55-year-old woman, was also injured and taken to the hospital. All three are said to be in serious condition.
Authorities are investigating whether alcohol was involved in the crash.
