Unbelievable! Crash Results In Only Minor Injuries…
Just in from Alyson Crean, spokesperson for City of Key West, KWPD:
The intersection of Flagler Avenue and South Roosevelt Blvd was closed for two hours around 1 a.m. Saturday after a high speed collision. A white Kia was traveling south on South Roosevelt Blvd and ran a red light. The car was estimated to be traveling between 85 and 100 mph. A red mustang traveling east made the legal turn onto South Roosevelt and was struck by the speeding car. The impact pushed the Mustang into the barrier wall at the side of the street.
One man fled from the Kia. Two passengers from the Mustang and the driver of the Kia were all transported to Lower Keys Medical Center and later released with just minor injuries. The driver of the Kia, a 19-year old woman, was cited for DUI. The driver of the Mustang was cited for not having a valid driver’ license.
The identities of the people involved in the crash are not yet available.

Well, that photo is pretty impressive for a “minor injuries” crash! What does the Kia look like?
1am. Holiday weekend. Party time. Party island. Hummmmm. Wonder if maybe alcohol was involved? Please don’t DRINK AND DRIVE this weekend – or ever! And if your not drinking, and your driving, or riding your bike – expect the unexpected…the other guy probably has been drinking. We do live on an island where partying and drinking is encouraged.
I am willing to bet whiplash or other issues will be coming. Seriously hard to believe no deaths. Hate seeing a Mustang get destroyed, KIA is a piece of garbage so no loss.
Always remember to get medical attention even if you feel ok . The new laws only give you 2 weeks or you get nothing. Even minor accidents can result in serious injuries that show up weeks later.
