Traffic delays from two crashes in Fellsmere

FELLSMERE — Two minor crashes – including a trailer rollover and a vehicle striking a seating shelter causing thousands in damages – slowed down traffic on Interstate 95 and on New York Avenue and North Broadway Street on Friday, police said.

Police and Florida Highway Patrol were at the scene of both crashes. No injuries or street closures were reported from either crash, but motorists should still expect delays.

The first crash happened Friday afternoon on southbound I-95 near the 157 mile marker and just north of the County Road 512 exit, police said. No further details were available on this crash.

The second crash, involving a gold Chrysler Sebring and red Kia Soul, happened about 4 p.m. at New York Avenue and North Broadway Street, police said. The Kia Soul was traveling east on New York Avenue when it ran a stop sign and drove into the path of the Chrysler, according to initial police reports.

The two vehicles collided, jolting the Chrysler off the roadway and into an unoccupied GoLine Bus seating shelter. The Chrysler was totaled from the crash while the Kia had moderate damage, police Officer Mike Ruiz said.

The seating shelter has between $5,000 and $10,000 in damages from the crash, Ruiz said.

Officers determined the Kia driver, a man, was at fault for violating the right of way while entering the intersection. No passengers were in the Kia.

The Chrysler had one driver, a woman, and two passengers, a boy and girl, Ruiz said.

FHP and police continue to investigate both crashes.
