Car Split in Two in Crash on Causeway

Despite a gruesome-looking accident scene, the driver of a vehicle torn apart on the 79th Street Causeway early Sunday morning was fortunate enough to suffer only minor injuries. While the man’s car was split in two pieces scattered across the causeway, the driver received only scratches and a bloody lip and was well enough to remain at the scene of the accident and speak with police.According to reports from the Miami Herald, the accident occurred near North Bay Harbor, to the east of Pelican Harbor. Reports indicate that an eastbound Nissan Sentra collided with a Mitsubishi Starion. The force of the impact threw both of the cars into a tree in the median of the causeway. The violent collision with the tree caused most of the Starion to be launched into the westbound lanes of the causeway, while the engine compartment remained in the median.Although the driver of the Starion sustained only minor injuries, those in the Sentra suffered more serious injuries. A man and a woman in the Sentra were airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center from the accident scene shortly after the collision. Police also believe a third person was riding in the Sentra at the time of the accident, but that person was not located at the accident scene when police arrived.

While the driver in this accident was able to walk away from the shocking crash with only minor injuries, not every crash survivor is so lucky.
