Minor Injuries in Overnight Wreck

A Florida family had their Christmas plans wrecked on Interstate 95 overnight. Just before 2am, motoritsts reported an accident near the interstate just north of Highway 204. Six members of a family were traveling in a red Ford van when police say the van was hit from behind by a Dodge SUV.

The van spun several times then slammed into the guardrail, scattering debris all over the interstate. The driver of the van had a minor cut. His wife and children were not injured. All six were taken to a local hospital to be checked out. The driver says he was taking his family to New Jersey for the Christmas holidays.

The SUV went into the woods after the impact. The driver of that vehicle was also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Charges are pending against the driver of the SUV.
