Car accident leads to 1 death, 2 injuries

A young woman recently lost her life in a tragic motor vehicle collision in Florida. In addition, two other people were seriously injured in the car accident. According to police, two other drivers' speeding caused the fatal collision.

Police reported that a 74-year-old man was driving a car down a street at about 6:30 p.m. With him was a woman, 20. At the same time, a 53-year-old man was driving a pickup truck next to another pickup truck on a nearby street. According to authorities, the two pickup trucks were speeding.

The 74-year-old man reportedly tried to turn left onto another road while the traffic light was green. However, police said the 53-year-old man's truck hit the older man's car, causing it to spin and then flip over. Police reported that the second pickup truck may have also struck the older man's car, although they were not sure. The second truck fled the crash scene.

The 20-year-old passenger in the car that was hit was pronounced deceased at the crash scene. Meanwhile, the older man who was driving suffered critical injuries and was taken to the hospital. The 53-year-old man was also taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Authorities said they were still looking for the driver of the second truck, a green Chevy Silverado with tinted windows.

The surviving loved ones of the woman may decide to file a wrongful death claim against the first pickup truck driver and perhaps against the second truck driver if he or she is found. Likewise, the older man who was injured may file a personal injury claim, seeking damages. A claim that is litigated successfully might lead to a damage award that may help with addressing funeral costs, hospital expenses and other losses related to the Florida car accident.
