As Florida Lawyers, we are sad to report that last evening was one of the deadliest in memory, as three different car accidents resulted in the wrongful deaths of four people. The collisions included an accident in which two vehicles erupted in flames.
The most tragic collision occurred overnight on the Sawgrass Expressway, west of Ft. Lauderdale, when, according to the Florida Highway Patrol, a car driving the wrong way, collied with a pickup truck, killing both drivers. Workers closed the highway for four hours after the accident.
The highway patrol also responded to a deadly motorcycle accident on I-95 in Fort Lauderdale, in which the driver allegedly lost control and struck the rear of a truck, and was ejected onto the highway.
Finally, the Town of Davie Police Department handled another late night single car accident on Flamingo Road in which the driver died.
We urge all drivers, particularly those driving in the late evening, to be extra vigilant. Having represented too many families who lost loved ones in similar accidents, we express our thoughts and condolences to the families involved in these losses.
