Car crashes that result in the death of a young person may affect the person’s family and friends as well as the community in which he or she lived. After a serious crash in Florida that resulted in several individuals suffering from personal injury, family members and friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help take care of the medical costs and other bills caused by the crash. The authorities are also asking any others with information about the crash to contact them.
It was just after 4 a.m. when a van collided with a small sedan. The driver of the sedan was a 21-year-old man taking his friend home from a local bar. Reports say that the driver of the van was traveling the wrong way on the highway when the accident occurred.
All three individuals involved in the crash were injured. The driver of the sedan was seriously injured in the crash and suffered severe brain damage as a result. He remained in the hospital for five days before passing away. His passenger, however, is expected to recover. The driver of the van also received treatment for injuries caused by the crash and has already been released.
There are a large number of things that may contribute to a late night, or very early morning, car crash which may result in a more serious accident. Victims of these accidents in Florida may wish to consult with an attorney in order to discuss possible compensation. This might include property damages, medical treatment costs or funeral expenses if the crash resulted in a death.
