Florida Highway Patrol soldier says God helped him survive a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County

Palm Beach County, Fla. – A Florida Highway Patrol jawan said it was a miracle he and a woman were alive after a hit-and-run driver caused a horrific and dangerous chain-reaction accident on Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County on Thursday made.

Trooper Dominique Alexandre, 23, was helping a woman with a flat tire in the north-facing alleys, south of Hypoluxo Road, at about 3:15 p.m.

Without warning, a sedan of unknown colour, model or year collided with a white pickup truck, which then swung a gray pickup truck to the side. The truck then rammed into the handicapped vehicle of the woman on the side of I-95.

Dash camera video from Alexandre’s FHP cruiser showed him and the woman exiting the road, escaping seriously injured.

“I had no idea that day would be an important moment in my life,” Alexandre said during a news conference on Friday. “It’s a miracle. God is always watching over us.”

Alexandre – who has been with the FHP for two years – is a man of strong and firm belief and said he always prays before leaving for work. He said that unwavering faith helped him survive Thursday’s painful encounter.

“I could hear the hoarse of the pickup truck,” said Alexander. “I had a split-second decision. My life or got hit. So I ran as fast as I could to the right and didn’t get hit.”

The sedan that caused the wreck took off shortly after the accident. The driver has neither been identified nor has been apprehended.

Alexandre said the woman had minor injuries to her legs and was taken to JFK Medical Center. The soldier sustained no injuries and returned to work on Friday.

“I always look up to the person above who protected me during yesterday’s incident,” said Alexandre. “When your faith is strong, God will always protect you.”

Alexandre urges motorists to observe officers along major highways whenever you can, and to follow Florida’s “Move Over Law,” which requires you to move on one lane—when you can do so safely. – Closed to law enforcement officers, emergency workers, sweepers, utility service vehicles, and tow trucks.

If you can’t move, slow down to a speed that is 20 mph below the posted speed limit.

“If you see law enforcement, fire rescue, road rangers, two trucks, garbage trucks, you need to slow down,” Alexandre said.

If you have any information about who the driver of the sedan is, call Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-8477.
