Weston Florida Woman Causes Accident, then Takes a Nap

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 4, 2014

A woman decided to take a nap after causing a serious accident on Interstate 75 in Weston, Florida. She was awoken by law enforcement officials and faces serious charges after injuring an individual, according to media reports and law officials.

Angelic Simonenko was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Impala on November 17 when she caused an accident and collided with a 2004 BMW. The accident caused the BMW to flip and come to rest in the median grass. The accident injured the driver of the BMW and broke his jaw. The Impala received significant frontend damage. To make matters worse, the vehicle was registered to Simonenko’s grandfather.

When police arrived at the scene, the door of the Impala was open and nobody was inside. The vehicle had the smell of marijuana and a green leafy substance was found on the floorboard. Police searched the area and found Simonenko sleeping by a nearby bush at a car dealership. She was using her purse as a pillow.

Police questioned the woman, who displayed obvious signs of intoxication. A witness said at the time of the accident Simonenko placed a call and said she was the person who caused the accident.

The Charges

The woman was charged with failure to remain at an accident involving serious injury, DUI causing serious bodily injury to another and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. She also faces six other charges.

According to Florida statute, DUI causing serious bodily injury is third degree felony and “means an injury to any person, including the driver, which consists of a physical condition that creates a substantial risk of death, serious personal disfigurement, or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ.”
