No serious injuries reported after crash on I-24 in Dade County Friday morning
On November 30th, at approximately 6:00am, Dade County Deputies were dispatched to the area of the 1 mile marker on Interstate 24 Eastbound, for an accident with injuries. Upon the arrival of DCSO Deputies, a vehicle was found over the guardrail, down an embankment, and with heavy damage. It was also found that a tractor-trailer was involved in the accident. Initial information suggest that the car was traveling Eastbound on Interstate 24, possibly struck the guardrail, and rolled on to its top, coming to rest in the middle of the two lanes. The tractor-trailer was also traveling Eastbound on Interstate 24, when it came upon the vehicle on its top. The tractor-trailer struck the vehicle, knocking it approximately 25 yards, over the guardrail, and off the embankment. The driver of the car was transported to the hospital in stable condition, while the tractor-trailer driver was uninjured. Weather conditions were a likely contributing factor in both accidents. Dade County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the accident. Dade County SO said they are very thankful that no one was injured worse that they were! Thanks to the Dade County Sheriff’s Office for the pictures.
