A late night car accident in Hollywood, Florida, between a car and a tractor trailer resulted in the wrongful death of the car’s driver. The car was heading south on the Florida Turnpike when it apparently lost control, crashed through a concrete wall and into oncoming traffic.
Dradine Knowles of Lauderhill, a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale, apparently lost control of her car a couple of miles south of Hollywood Boulevard. According the the Florida Highway Patrol, the 2006 Chevy HHR smashed through the concrete barrier wall, which divided north and southbound traffic, and then went into oncoming northbound traffic, when it collided with the truck.
We can only assume was another case of failing to use a seat belt, both the car’s driver and passenger were ejected into the street. We again stress to all drivers that the consequences of not using seat belts and child car seats are unfortunately deadly.
