On December 10 2018 at approx 10:30 a.m. Clermont Police, Clermont Fire, and EMT crews responded to a major vehicle accident on Hwy 50 at Grand Hwy.
The first responders had the roadway closed for about half an hour while clearing the accident.
Three total vehicles were involved in this accident. All drivers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
I was able to speak with the driver of the Ford pickup. He says that he was sitting at the traffic light when he heard a loud noise and was then hit from behind at a high rate of speed. This caused his truck to strike the vehicle in front of him as well.
“If I would have been in a smaller car I’d be dead,” Jon R. tells us.
Jon went on to say, “When he came to there were all these people around me asking me if I was okay. I’m really thankful for them and am grateful to everyone that was helping us.”
