More Information Forthcoming in Recently Released 911 Calls after Florida DUI Crash

The Florida Highway Patrol has released dozens of 911 phone calls that were placed in the minutes after Wednesday night’s horrific accident in Daytona Beach. A 45-year-old woman was walking the beach around 9:35 p.m. when she was struck by a Nissan pickup truck after the vehicle had plowed through a lifeguard stand. The 911 calls describe many grisly details of the incident…from persons trying to back the truck off the woman to a passersby trying to administer CPR.

The driver of the Nissan truck that struck the woman is a 35-year-old male who was booked on suspicion of DUI. Many local residents have expressed their anger and sadness over the incident and say it highlights the need for more vigilance along Daytona Beach, both from the beach patrol and visitors to the beach. Although there are several signs in the area outlining rules that drivers must follow as they drive the beach, such as a 10 mph speed restriction and texting prohibited, it is difficult for law enforcement to catch everyone that breaks the rules.

Complicating the matter is the presence of alcohol at the beach. Though alcohol is strictly prohibited on the beach and along the access ways, beach goers sometimes bring their own, adding a potentially dangerous ingredient to the mix. Alcohol is often a contributing factor in many accidents that happen on Daytona Beach, not just vehicle accidents. Impaired individuals may not set out to harm others, but their careless and negligent actions often result in tragedy for others.

If you have been injured in a Florida drunk driver accident or any other accident where alcohol was a contributing factor, there is help. Please call the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham at 877-FL-INJURY (877-354-6587) for a free initial consultation.
