2 Hurt, but Baby OK in Saturday Crash
Two Miami motorists were hospitalized, but an infant was uninjured, in a two-car crash about 5:13 p.m. Saturday at Mile Marker 63 in which a pickup rolled on its side, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Michael Escolona, 20, was driving a 1998 Honda south with Jessica Lam, 20, of Miami, and an infant in a car seat, when he reportedly rear-ended a Toyota pickup driven by 71-year-old Felix Hernandez, who was slowing to turn left into a parking lot at the south end of Long Key Bridge, the release states. Hernandez also had a passenger, Fnu Hernandez, 70. Felix Hernandez was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami; Fnu Hernandez was taken to Fishermen’s Hospital in Marathon. All four adults were wearing seat belts. The infant was properly secured in the car seat of the Honda and was not hurt, the report says. The crash closed the highway for about an hour and 15 minutes.
