Fatal car accident happens near site of previous deadly crash

Certain roadways and intersections are prone to motor vehicle crashes. Sometimes that is due to a design flaw or inadequate safety infrastructure. There may be some areas where drivers may fail to pay attention to specific safety guidelines that would otherwise keep them safe. This could be the case in a recent fatal car accident here in Florida involving multiple vehicles, since the location was the site of a fatal crash just two years before.

The most recent accident happened on a late weekday afternoon on a state road. Authorities say that a Toyota was traveling eastward with another sedan traveling the same direction behind it. The driver of the Toyota drove into the oncoming lane for unknown reasons. The car allegedly ran into a semi-truck headed in the opposite direction. That impact apparently caused the semi to veer into the eastbound lane where it hit the second sedan.

Authorities say that a woman driving the second car was thrown from her vehicle due to the impact of the truck, despite wearing a seat belt, and she died on the scene. The Toyota driver was uninjured, but the condition of the truck driver is unclear. Strangely, the site of this crash was also where a fatal accident between two cars happened just two years beforehand. Police haven't commented on whether something about the location contributed to the more recent crash, nor have they announced the possibility of filing criminal charges.

Even if Florida police decide against pursuing criminal charges, the family of the woman who died may decide to file a wrongful death claim against anyone deemed at fault for the car accident. A successfully-litigated claim could result in monetary damages that may help a grieving family cover any unexpected costs resulting from a similar tragedy. An attorney with experience in this area of the law can advise victims and/or their families of their available options.
