Car accidents: Woman charged in hit and run that killed 3

Three people were killed after a woman allegedly drove drunk last week. Labelled as one of Florida's deadliest hit and run car accidents, one child and three adults were killed in the Tampa crash. A 29-year-old woman was charged in the crash.

The woman's bond was denied by a judge who was still determining whether to set any bond at all. She was charged with three counts of manslaughter while drinking and driving, tampering with evidence after a crash, and hit and run involving death or serious injury. A 41-year-old, a 29-year-old and an 8-year-old were all killed in the wreck.

The accident occurred in the afternoon when the woman lost control of her car and veered into the median. This caused another car to swerve into oncoming traffic, crashing into two other cars. That car then burst into flames on the roadway. All three people in that vehicle were killed at the scene.

The woman who has been accused in their deaths was apparently speeding when the wreck occurred. Police say she was also under the influence. She apparently drove away from the scene and continued to flee from police until the car she was driving became disable due to damage from the accident.

Anyone in Tampa or another area of Florida who has been injured or has lost a loved one due to a drunk driver may want to confer with a personal injury attorney. Compensation can be sought in fatal car accidents for lost time from work, medical expenses, wrongful death, funeral costs and more. A lawyer can investigate the accident and offer advice and support regarding all related legal claims.
