Fatal Florida accident kills one and severely injures two

Troopers are investigating a fatal Florida accident that killed one Monday morning, March 27, on County Road 137 in southeastern Suwannee County.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred when a Ford Taurus swerved into the wrong lane and crashed into a Toyota Corolla. The brutal wreck injured the Ford driver badly, an O’Brian man of 41. The man was taken to the HCA Lake City hospital, but unfortunately, he did not survive.

A 41 year old Ford passenger and the 43 year old Toyota driver were also critically injured, and they were rushed to UF Health in Gainesville.

A detailed investigation is underway to identify what went wrong.

Our deepest condolences go from the heart to the departed man’s family and loved ones. The injured are in our thoughts and prayers for a quick and complete recovery.

Negligence led to this fatal Florida accident

Such accidents are uncommon, but when they do occur, the consequences are severe. In 2022, the Florida Highway Patrol reported 3,854 wrong-way crashes with 128 deaths.  

Has a negligent driver injured you? You may recover adequate compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim. The state of Florida uses the doctrine of “pure comparative negligence,” according to it, a driver’s percentage of fault determines how much compensation they deserve. In most cases, you can still get damages even if you were partly at fault.
