Police Chase From Orange-Seminole County Ends in Crash

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on June 25, 2018

Orange County deputies on duty this past Friday became involved in a chase that spanned several counties throughout Florida and ended in a collision between a car and a fence.  Reports from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office state that the event began after deputies attempted to perform an arrest on a 19-year-old individual who was wanted in connection with an armed robbery.  This initial altercation between the police and the civilian began on Glasser Avenue, inside of Orange County, but the 19-year-old was not interested in being arrested by the authorities and instead of obeying the officers attempting to engage the traffic stop the young person sped away from the scene.  This decision prompted deputies to radio for additional units in order to pursue the fleeing individual.

During the pursuit, the driver fleeing from the police used their vehicle to cause significant damage to numerous pieces of private property.  It is not clear if this damage was inflicted at the moment the driver first fled from the officers or if it happened sometime later, while the police units were chasing them.

We do know that the 19-year-old led the deputies out of Orange County and into Seminole County.  At this point, it seems that the driver struck numerous street signs.  Additionally, the reports state that the driver used their car to crash into at least one other vehicle.  It is not known if anyone was inside of this second vehicle at the time of the crash, although the report does indicate that no one was injured as a result of the collision between the two cars.

Even after this crash, the 19-year-old did not give up trying to flee the police.  Eventually, the young person’s frantic dash away from the authorities ended when they lost control of their vehicle and collided into a fence.  The report did not indicate if this fence was located on private property or on public land, and it also failed to mention whether or not the fleeing individual suffered from any injuries as a result of the crash.

With the car immobilized, the police were able to approach the vehicle, apprehend the driver, and take them to the Orange County Jail.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.
