Fighting for Florida Car Accident Victims Since 1977

Florida Highway Patrol accident investigators are looking into what led to a fatal two-vehicle accident that occurred on September 8. FHP officers say that the accident occurred around 8:00 p.m. at South Orange Blossom Trail and 43rd Street. A FHP spokesperson said that 911 dispatchers received numerous calls about the accident that evening and when emergency responders arrived at the scene, they found two badly damaged vehicles that were blocking the road. They report that one of the vehicles involved in the accident, a small four-door sedan, was crushed so badly on the passenger side that firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate victims from the wreckage.

The other vehicle involved in the accident was a minivan with extensive front-end damage. The two people in the sedan and the lone occupant of the minivan were transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where two of them died from their injuries.

If you live in the area, you know very well how dangerous it is to drive, bike and walk on Florida roadways in general and Orlando-area streets and highways in particular. To illustrate how dangerous Florida roadways are, consider the following accident statistics from 2007:

  • 366,917 drivers involved in Florida auto accidents
  • 3,221 people killed in auto accidents
  • 2,947 fatal auto accidents
  • 212,149 people injured in auto accidents
  • 22,823 alcohol related auto accidents
  • 1,252 drug related auto accidents
