Accident kills 2 and closes road

An accident in the Florida city of Spring Hill has caused the demise of two people. The emergency crews had to close the road for hours as they worked to clear the scene.

According to police reports, the wreck happened at shortly after 11 p.m. on April 16. A 2011 Infinity G37 sedan was proceeding northbound on Mariner Boulevard when it crossed the intersection with Bali Lane. The driver, a 25-year-old man from Spring Hill, lost control of the vehicle for reasons as yet unreported and strayed into the path of oncoming traffic. A 43-year-old woman driving a northbound Dodge Charger was unable to avoid the other vehicle and crashed into it.

The driver of the Infinity died at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Charger was taken to a hospital in the area where she later perished from her wounds. Two passengers in the Charger were also taken to the hospital and kept there in serious condition.

The death of a loved one in a car crash that was not their fault can create a devastating loss in the family they leave behind. In addition to the weight of grief and sorrow that they must bear, they can potentially be left bereft of the economic and societal support that their spouse, parent, child or other close kin could have been expected to provide. An attorney may be able to help the grieving family to explain exactly what economic damage has been done to a family by the untimely passing of a loved one. This may help them if they choose to file a wrongful death suit and seek compensation from those who they hold to be at fault.
