Car accidents: 1 dead in Florida

Police have confirmed that one person is dead and two others are injured following a crash on Highway 90. Florida Highway Patrol, which responds to car accidents on the state's highway system, were on the scene of this accident the evening of Nov. 6. Charges are not expected to be filed as the individual believed responsible for the crash perished. 

According to the police report, a vehicle driven by a 54-year-old man was headed westbound on Highway 90 when, for reasons that are currently unknown, his vehicle veered into the eastbound lanes at an apparently extreme angle. As a result, his vehicle was T-boned on the front driver's side by an approaching car. The force of the impact killed the driver of the westbound vehicle. 

The driver of the eastbound vehicle and one passenger were taken to a local hospital. Their injuries were not made public by police. Police are still in the process of investigating what may have caused the man to veer into oncoming traffic. For the moment, they have not ruled out recklessness, negligence or intoxication. 

As with most car accidents, the trajectory of this case will be determined by the outcome of the Florida police investigation. If it can be determined that the eastbound driver materially contributed to the accident by improperly operating his motor vehicle, the injured parties could use that evidence to substantiate a personal injury suit against his estate in civil court. Evidence of this type is necessary to present to the court, even if no criminal charges are filed.
