It was reported that a 32-year-old New Port Richey man was traveling northbound in a 2017 Hyundai Accent when he stopped at the intersection. An eastbound 2011 Ford Mustang driven by an 18-year-old Palm Harbor man crashed into the Hyundai as it was making a left turn.
The Hyundai hit a pedestrian signal and tree. Both occupants in the vehicle suffered fatal injuries in the crash. The other driver was hospitalized for the treatment of serious injuries.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Deadly Intersection Crashes in Florida
While traveling through an intersection, the likelihood of getting involved in a car accident increases. The latest data even suggests that traffic intersections have become much more dangerous through the years. According to the Federal Highway Administration, nearly 2.5 million car accidents happen at junctions every year, and these account for more than 40% of all recorded car crashes in the United States.
When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, it can be devastating. For the family of a deceased victim, unexpected expenses and other damages are common. Family members of survivors frequently express frustration and helplessness. The fact that their financial situation is rapidly deteriorating adds to their sense of betrayal.
