One Dead in Mysterious Orlando Crash

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on February 3, 2017

An accident involving only one vehicle along Judge Road close to where it intersects with Shadowridge Drive in Orlando is under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. What is currently known is that the accident, which proved to be fatal, was initially reported to the authorities around 5:00 in the morning. When officers and other emergency response teams responded to the scene they found only one vehicle with only one person inside.  This individual remained unresponsive to all attempts made by the emergency teams at reviving them. Shortly thereafter, the driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.  

The report given by the Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson, Lt. Roger Brennan, indicates that the crash is still very much under investigation. While the police and detectives attempt to discover a reason behind this single-vehicle incident Judge Road will be closed from Conway to Shadowridge. Nothing in Lt. Roger Brennan’s statement gave any indication as to whether or not the police have any ideas regarding the circumstances leading to the accident.

Cases such as this one, where only one vehicle and one individual are involved, are difficult to approach. For the family and loved ones left behind, there are only unanswered questions.  We have a vision of car accidents as something that always involves two cars, or at least two individuals. Accidents that don’t involve other vehicles or clear indications of external factors become labyrinths of speculation. Could it have been an animal that the driver swerved to avoid? Did something malfunction within the car? Were the roads poorly maintained and ripe for devastating effects? The investigation will likely provide a series of answers to all these questions, although nothing will ever be enough to return the deceased to their loved ones left behind.

Every day accidents such as this one occur throughout the state. Not all of them are so shrouded in uncertainty, and not all of them lead to death, but accidents—whether in a car, on the job, or just trying to relax—happen without warning and with frequently life-altering consequences. If you find yourself or a loved one undergoing such circumstances, then it is important to seek proper consultation as soon as possible to ensure that the pain caused by the incident stays as minimal as possible.
