Three Victims Taken To Hospital After Car Flips Off Highway

A rollover accident on the interstate allegedly occurred when a driver merged into an already occupied lane, causing the victims to swerve off the road to avoid a collision.

According to the initial reports announced by law enforcement investigators, the incident involved a white van that veered dangerously into another lane of traffic. The victims of the incident, two women and a young boy of six, were driving on the Interstate heading westbound in the center lane. The three victims noticed that a white van in the lane near them had turned on its left turn signal just as it began to swerve inside the lane they were occupying.

The driver honked her horn, but the white van continued on its path unperturbed, moving steadily into the path of their 2000 Ford Taurus. The driver panicked, swerving to the left, overcompensated and went off the road, crashing at high speed into the median barrier in the center, which divides the highway into eastern and western lanes. The vehicle flipped over the barrier and flew into the air, rolling over once before coming to a stop.

Investigators Search For Identity Of Suspect

Emergency responders were able to take the three injured crash victims to a nearby hospital for treatment. According to a statement released by police, the three suffered only minor bumps ands scrapes. Officials say they are relieved, as the damage could have been far worse. Credit is given to the fact that all three occupants were wearing proper safety harnesses at the time of the accident.

The driver of the white van has not yet been identified. Witnesses say that the van refused to slow down or stop, speeding away westward on the Interstate. Regarding the van, law enforcement agents said they did not know the make or model, but that they believed it to have tined windows.

Officers have urged anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspect to contact the police immediately.
