Two vehicles are reported to have been involved in an accident on Cove Road near Stuart on August 23rd, 2020. The Sunday crash that happened at about 5:30 p.m. caused a huge snarl-up as the stretch of Cove Road remained closed between Ault Avenue and Willoughby Boulevard to allow the Florida Highway Patrol to carry their investigation.
According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, the two-vehicle collision on Cove Road caused the death of a 65-year-old man at the scene, and another 25-year-old woman from Palm Beach Gardens sustained severe injuries. The spokesperson for Martin County Fire Rescue, Bethany Alex, said that the injured woman was flown to a nearby hospital.
Cause of the 2-Vehicle Accident
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident happened as the SUV driver tried to make an inappropriate lane change and landed into the pickup’s path, causing the vehicles to collide head-on. Looking at the images from the scene, the pickup overturned onto the grass along the northern shoulder of the road and rested on its roof while the SUV came to rest between the eastbound and westbound lanes.
