Zephyrhills, FL (January 9, 2022) – A man was arrested following a deadly traffic accident in Zephyrhills on Sunday morning, January 9. The fatal crash took place at the intersection of FL-60 and US-301.
Local reports revealed that 39-year-old Michael Sean Jones was headed east in a pickup truck on FL-60 as another pickup was headed northbound. Jones failed to stop for a red light and collided with the other pickup. The crash caused Jones’ vehicle to collide with an SUV and a sedan that were waiting at the light.
The other pickup hit a utility pole. The 44-year-old driver of the vehicle sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the SUV and sedan and another passenger were also injured.
An investigation into the cause of the deadly accident is underway.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Fatal Red-Light Collisions
According to national statistics, red-light runners are responsible for hundreds of deaths across the country each year. These kinds of impacts are among the worst and are responsible for more than half of all severe injuries and a fourth of all deaths on the roadway. Left-hand turns are responsible for almost 22% of all intersection accidents. According to the Federal Highway Administration, nearly 2.5 million car accidents happen at intersections each year.
It can be devastating when a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Unexpected expenses and other damages are common for the family of a deceased victim. Survivors’ family members frequently express frustration and helplessness. Their sense of betrayal is heightened by the fact that their financial situation is rapidly deteriorating. Surviving family members are only natural in their desire to hold those responsible for their loved one’s death accountable by filing a wrongful death claim with the help of a Zephyrhills personal injury attorney.
