A driver was rushed to the hospital after his truck flew off the Turnpike, crashed into a home and several other cars before catching fire.
The wild ride ended outside a home Tuesday afternoon, but there was a lot of damage along the way before that vehicle came to a stop. “A car came off of the Turnpike, rolled through a chain link fence, came through and struck two vehicles at this residence and ended up catching on fire,” said Hollywood Fire Rescue Chief Joel Medina.
The crash caused the Ford F-150 pickup truck’s driver, Tad Thomas of Port St. Lucie, to be taken with serious internal injuries to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida Highway Patrol and Hollywood officials said.
The driver was pulled by bystanders from the wreck that Medina said was so charred he could not immediately make out the manufacturer.
