The University of Miami School of Law lost a pillar of it’s community, when a Sunday morning car accident outside of downtown Miami claimed the life of Professor Alan Swan. Professor Swan died from injuries suffered in the collision which occurred Sunday morning on northbound S. Dixie Highway. Swan’s wife also suffered seriously injuries in the collision.
According to police, the car accident happened as the Swans were driving up US 1 to I-95 when another vehicle, speeding along US 1, struck Swan’s vehicle, sending it out of control. Police charged the other driver with leaving the scene of a deadly accident.
As attorneys working in Miami, we send out condolences to Professor Swan’s families and urge his former students to recall the memorable experiences and lessons he passed along to them.
