Orlando auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham has been closely following developments in a May 2010 road rage case that caused the death of an Orlando woman. Since he began practicing law in 1977, he has seen Florida roadways become increasingly more dangerous and has been a strong advocate against road rage and other kinds of driver negligence that often result in tragedy.
A nearly head-on collision caused by a drunk driver traveling the wrong way on S.R. 528 has claimed the life of an Orlando man and injured his son. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the 45-year-old victim and his 17-year-old son were traveling west on S.R.528 shortly after 10:00 p.m. on October 1 when a sport utility vehicle traveling in the wrong direction came straight at them. FHP troopers said the Ford explorer driven by the 42-year-old drunk driver was heading east in the westbound lanes when it struck the left front of the victim’s car. The collision forced the victim’s car to the shoulder of S.R. 528 where it spun and struck a palm tree.
A Florida Central News article reports that officials with the Florida Highway Patrol are investigating a recent five-vehicle accident in Lakeland that claimed the lives of three people. FHP officials say that the accident occurred around 4 pm on U.S. Highway 98 just south of Rockridge Road when a Chevrolet pickup truck crashed head-on with a motorcycle. They say the pickup was driven by a 65-year-old woman who veered into the path of a motorcycle operated by a 55-year-old man.
Central Florida News reported that a hit-and-run accident on September 6 sent a woman to the hospital with critical injuries, and the woman’s family is pleading with the public for help in finding the driver who fled the scene. According to law enforcement officials investigating the accident, the head-on accident occurred before 3 a.m. and witnesses were unable to provide a positive description of the vehicle involved.
