Auto accident claims 1 life, leads to 3 injuries

One person has sadly lost his life in a tragic car collision in Florida. Meanwhile, three other people were injured. The auto accident involved a single automobile and took place on a recent Saturday evening.

The car crash occurred at round 4:57 p.m. along State Road 267. According to authorities, the car was going north alone the state road when the person driving it ended up losing control of it. The car went across the road's southbound lanes and then onto its shoulder. Police said that after that the car spun and overturned prior to striking a tree.

The driver and two children, ages 1 and 3, suffered serious injuries in the collision. Another passenger, a 50-year-old man, suffered critical injuries. All parties were transported to the hospital, but the male passenger passed away. Police said they did not know if alcohol was a causal factor in the collision and that charges were pending.

If police determine that the driver caused the auto accident due to negligent or reckless behavior behind the wheel -- such as speeding or driving while distracted -- then the driver may face personal injury claims as well as a wrongful death lawsuit seeking damages. If the driver ends up being charged specifically with drunk driving and is then convicted for this, proof of the conviction may be presented in civil court in an effort to establish liability for the fatal accident. Only if liability is established before the civil court hearing the case in Florida will claims for damages be adjudicated.
