Chopper 5 flew over the scene around 7 a.m. and spotted two of the vehicles crashed into each other and a third vehicle nearby with substantial frontal damage.

Florida Highway Patrol said a driver was heading southbound on Interstate 95 in the middle lane when he lost control for an unknown reason. 

This caused the driver to veer off the interstate, crash through a fence onto Village Boulevard and hit two other vehicles. 

There were no serious injuries, but a driver of one car was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

A passenger in another car was taken by a family member to the hospital for a possible broken wrist.

FHP said the driver who caused the wreck does not have a valid driver’s license, so he will be charged for that violation and will likely face a careless driving charge as well.
