Palm Harbor, FL (November 20, 2021) – A rollover accident in Palm Harbor left two people injured on Friday night, November 19. The crash was reported at around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Belcher Road and Hawk Avenue. 

A 20-year-old man from Palm Harbor was headed northbound on Belcher Road in a Mitsubishi Eclipse. A report revealed that an unknown vehicle changed lanes and entered the path of the Palm Harbor man. The driver lost control attempting to avoid crashing into the car. 

The Eclipse entered the east shoulder and crashed into a utility box and a wooden fence at the intersection. The vehicle reportedly overturned several times. The driver and his 16-year-old passenger were both injured in the accident. 

An ongoing accident investigation is being managed by local law enforcement officials. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Rollover Crashes in Florida

Palm Harbor, FL - Two Injured in Rollover at Belcher Rd & Hawk AveOn Florida highways and roads, rollover crashes have become more common. Rollover collisions are more likely to result in serious or fatal injuries, with driver inattention and poor road conditions being major contributors. Rollover collisions were involved in more than 35 percent of fatal passenger-vehicle accidents in 2010, but only about 2% of all documented car accidents. Unrestrained occupants were responsible for nearly 69% of rollover deaths that year, contributing to roughly 7,600 fatalities.

According to official government data, the number of people killed or injured in car accidents is rising. As a result, many Floridians have been involved in serious car accidents. Even if you are eventually able to return to work, it may be difficult to earn the same amount of money as before the accident. This can occur as a result of your injuries restricting your movement, the costs of your recovery, and compensating for lost time at work.
