MONROE COUNTY, Fla. — An iguana crossing the road caused a crash Tuesday that left a firefighter and his daughter in critical condition, investigators said.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Capt. Jeff Power of the Boynton Beach Fire Department and his daughter were driving along U.S. 1 near Marathon when a car in the southbound lanes stopped because of a crossing iguana, WEAR-TV reported.
Power and his daughter were taken by medical helicopter to a hospital where they were in critical condition.
“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as they begin their long and difficult journey towards recovery,” the Boynton Beach Fire Rescue said Wednesday on social media.
