A four-car auto accident on December 22 sent three Orlando residents to area hospitals for treatment for undisclosed injuries. Orlando Police investigators say that two men who were fleeing from a reported home invasion caused the accident on Colonial Drive and Orange Avenue near the I-4 interchange. Police say the armed robbery suspects were weaving through traffic at speeds up to 70 mph when they caused the accident.
Data released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles indicates that 2011 was an especially deadly year for motorists and pedestrians in Flagler County, with at least 24 people losing their lives in accidents on county roadways. The grim number was up slightly from the 23 people killed in 2010 and up sharply from the 16 people killed in accidents in 2009. At least four of those killed in Flagler County accidents were pedestrians, a bleak reminder of Florida’s unenviable reputation as the most dangerous state in the country for pedestrian accidents. Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham is concerned about the recent rise in fatal accidents in the area and is particularly concerned that area drivers are not exercising enough care to avoid pedestrian accidents.
