A Florida motorist may be cautious and alert behind the wheel, obeying all traffic regulations. However, if another nearby driver is negligent or reckless, the careful driver is still at risk for a collision. For instance, if two cars approach an intersection and one driver proceeds to enter the crossroads on a green light but another driver fails to stop at a red light, it is a recipe for disaster. Personal injury and loss of life occurred after a recent incident like this.
As most Florida travelers have experienced, there is typically a lot of traffic in late-afternoon hours, with people heading home from work, as well as others who may be driving to sporting events or other social gatherings. If even one driver is negligent behind the wheel, it places that person and all others nearby at risk for personal injury. Many times, collisions have the worst possible outcome.
Members of a Florida Pentecostal church were shocked and grief-stricken to learn that a van carrying numerous children and adults from their congregation was involved in a serious multi-vehicle collision. The incident caused serious personal injury to eight people. Sadly, an additional seven people died. When fatal accident victims include children, sorrow is always intensified.
It is no secret how dangerous intersections in Florida and other states can be. Even the most alert and cautious drivers are often at risk if nearby motorists are negligent or acting under the influence of alcohol. The latter is suspected as a causal factor in a recent intersection collision that caused personal injury -- one of which was fatal -- to several travelers.
Florida Highway Patrol officers are often called to chaotic scenes when motor vehicle collisions occur on the turnpike. Not so common is having such an incident involve a pedestrian, as people on Florida's Turnpike are usually inside their vehicles. On a recent Tuesday morning, however, a fatal personal injury occurred when a car crashed into a person on foot.
Anyone who has ever navigated Florida highways knows how stressful it can be. No matter how alert and cautious a driver might be, if another motorist is negligent, it can be disastrous. A personal injury situation occurred recently when two vehicles on state road 429 collided.
In Florida and some other states, public transportation buses often have bike racks on their front ends. A man who was about to board a bus in Junction City recently had no way of knowing that he was experiencing the final hours of his life when he secured his bicycle on the rack. Sadly, the man never got to take his seat on the bus because a vehicle suddenly careened across a traffic lane and struck the bus head-on, as well as the man who was caught in between the two vehicles. The driver of the vehicle also suffered personal injury.
No matter how cautious and alert a Florida motorist happens to be, if a nearby driver is negligent, it can lead to disaster. Personal injury (which in many cases, proves fatal) is often the result of distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or outright reckless behavior at the wheel. While preliminary investigations did not reveal the exact cause, a recent tragedy suggests something was awry moments before a head-on collision occurred.
Following Hurricane Michael, many electricians and other workers traveled to Florida from other locations throughout the country to aid in the recovery efforts in areas that were devastated by the storm. Among the workers were three electricians, two of whom had been away from their families and community for approximately two weeks when tragedy struck. All three were killed when a suspected drunk driver hit them.
Florida sparkling water consumers really have no way of knowing what is in the products they drink other than by reading the ingredient list on the label. A class action lawsuit has been filed in another state because a group of consumers believes that they purchased a product that was supposed to have all-natural ingredients. They say not only is that a false statement but the products in question caused personal injury.
