Three Kissimmee residents were injured recently in three separate auto accidents on Interstate 4 and Sand Lake Road. Police say that the first accident began when a 1997 Saturn driven by a 23-year-old Ocklawaha woman attempted to merge onto I-4 from an onramp but abruptly changed lanes and drove into the path of a 1980 Toyota Corolla driven by a 19-year-old Kissimmee man. Shortly thereafter, a 22-year-old Kissimmee woman driving a 1999 Mazda slowed to avoid colliding with the wreckage and was rear-ended by a 2011 Toyota Camry driven by a 57-year-old Orlando man.
Shortly after the second collision, a car driven by a 21-year-old Orlando man who slowed to avoid the wreckage was rear-ended by a 2007 Lincoln driven by a 52-year-old man, also from Orlando. The series of accidents sent two people to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment for serious injuries, and two others were taken to Dr. P. Phillips Hospital in Orlando for minor injuries. The woman driving the Saturn was ticketed for making an improper lane change, and both drivers who caused the rear-end accidents were ticketed for careless driving.
Orlando auto accident lawyer James O. Cunningham would like to remind drivers to exercise extra care near accident scenes and make sure to allow plenty of distance between their vehicles and the vehicles in front of them. Rear-end accidents can result in devastating injuries to the occupants of cars that are struck from behind. These accidents usually cause debilitating head, neck and back injuries that require expensive medical care and impair victims’ quality of life for months and years and prevent them from working, providing for their families and enjoying their favorite activities.
