2 airlifted after multi-vehicle crash outside Hialeah home

HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews have airlifted two people to the hospital after they were involved in a two-vehicle crash outside of a house in a Hialeah neighborhood, leading police to shut down a roadway for hours.

Hialeah Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the crash along West 60th Street, near 14th Lane, just after 5:15 p.m. Monday.

Cellphone video recorded in the immediate aftermath showed more than a half-dozen men trying to pry open the door of a black Infiniti sedan. They were then seen attempting to move the vehicle in order to reach the victims inside.

First responders arrived at the scene moments later.

7SkyForce captured three damaged cars in the driveway of the home: the Infiniti, a silver SUV and a maroon sedan. The latter vehicle, seen resting against the house, was believed to have been struck during the crash. The impact also damaged a fence at the property.

Police shut down all westbound lanes and a couple of eastbound lanes of West 60th Street near the scene of the crash and remained there for hours. The roadway did not reopen to traffic until just before 10 p.m.

According to Hialeah Fire Rescue, a 50-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were injured. They said the female patient was awake and alert, but the man was somewhat disoriented.

Paramedics airlifted the victims to Ryder Trauma Center for treatment.

A father and son at the scene told 7News off camera that there was a 14-year-old inside the Infiniti who is the older man’s son and the younger man’s brother. They said the teen is expected to be OK.

The father and son said that there was a 17-year-old boy in the Infiniti who was also uninjured. They added that the injured woman was riding with the boys.

Relatives said both teenage boys had just finished baseball practice at the time of the crash.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units assisted Hialeah crews.

Police have not specified how or why those cars ended up in that driveway.
