PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL – A collision on Florida’s Turnpike Tuesday afternoon left three people injured, including two Florida Highway Patrol troopers.
WPTV reports the troopers were conducting a traffic stop near mile marker 113 in Palm Beach Gardens when their patrol cars were struck by a northbound truck pulling a trailer with three vehicles on it.
