Wrong Way Crash Leaves One Dead Near Orlando

A 23 year old woman from Sumter County, Florida, was killed over the long Fourth of July weekend following a wrong way accident near Orlando, Florida. The victim was behind the wheel of a 2013 Kia Optima driving on State Road 50 at 1:00 am when she was hit head on by a 2011 Dodge Charger. The Dodge Charger was driven by a male from Brooksville, who, according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), was driving the wrong way on SR 50. It is unknown why he was traveling in the wrong lane at the time of the accident.

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. In addition, debris from the crash hit a 2013 Hyundai Elantra driven by a 24 female from Orlando.

This was the second woman from Sumter County to be killed in an automobile accident over the Fourth of July weekend.

If you or a loved one were injured in an Orlando, Florida motor vehicle accident over the Fourth of July weekend, you may have the legal right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, to protect your right to compensation, it is essential that you do two things immediately.

First, seek medical attention. Regardless of how minor you think your injuries are, always see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident. This is because often times motor-vehicle related injuries do not manifest themselves for days – sometimes even weeks – after the accident. By going to a doctor, you will have created a clear official record of the accident and any effects. This way, down the road if you do take legal recourse for more serious injuries, there will be no questioning of whether or not the injuries are related to the car accident, were pre-existing or were caused by something else.

The second thing you need to do – even before you talk to your insurance company – is to seek the advice of an experienced Orlando personal injury lawyer. With a simple, free consultation, your attorney can review the facts of your case and start creating a legal strategy for getting you the compensation you deserve.
