A car crash involving several vehicles closed John Young Parkway just north of State Road 528 early Monday morning.....
The accident involved vehicles traveling in three different directions.
According to investigators, one car coming off the S.R. 528 ramp collided with a car that was traveling southbound on John Young Parkway. That car rolled over and went into the northbound lanes.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers said each of the cars had one person inside and all were transported to the hospital. There was no word on their conditions.
One driver was ejected from their vehicle.
Florida Highway Patrol closed John Young Parkway for about an hour while they worked to clear the scene of the crash. By 5 a.m. a northbound lane had reopened, but southbound lanes were still closed.
By 6 a.m. all of the lanes were open.
It is vitally important to wear one's seatbelt, as, according to the National Organization for Youth Safety, ejection from the vehicle is one of the most injurious events that can happen to a person in a car crash. In fatal crashes in 2008, 77% of passenger vehicle occupants who were totally ejected from the vehicle were killed.
In Florida, you are required by law to wear your seatbelt, and it is a primary offense, which means you can be pulled-over and ticketed for not wearing your seatbelt.
