Several Persons Injured in Collision on Crooked Tree Causeway

A near-fatal collision this afternoon along the Crooked Tree causeway has left several persons, including two minors, hospitalized with varying degrees of injuries.  Sometime around three o’clock, a grey Toyota Tacoma heading in the direction of the village collided head-on with another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.  The violent impact of the crash sent the incoming Ford Ranger bowling into the lagoon below.  Its occupants were observed suffering from lacerations and abrasions, as well as other bodily injuries.  News Five was on the scene shortly afterwards and we spoke with a friend of one of the accident victims.
