On Sunday evening, a 50-year-old woman from Apopka was driving a Chevy Avalanche towards the intersection of Hiawassee Road and Balboa Drive when she collided with an SUV being driven by the 61-year-old Orlando woman Deborah Anderson. Due to the force of the impact, Anderson’s vehicle was shoved violently off course, crashing into a Chrysler being driven by another Orlando resident, the 31-year-old James Williams. The Florida Highway Patrol has issued a statement regarding the collision that details the currently known facts of the case.
According to their report, the crash was initially caused when the unnamed 50-year-old ran a red light. This caused her to collide with the driver’s side of the Ford SUV driven by Anderson. Anderson was subsequently rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where her injuries were reported as being fairly serious. At the time of this writing, her current condition is not known.
Williams was also injured as a result of the collision, although it is believed that his injuries were less life-threatening than those of Anderson. He was transported to Florida Hospital South where it is believed that he is well on the path towards recovery. Still, any accident can result in those involved suffering unexpected and painful effects, many of which do not begin to surface until weeks, months, and sometimes years after the initial accident.
The woman responsible for this terrible collision has not yet been named by the authorities. It is, in fact, not clear whether or not the authorities have even apprehended her. After the collision, she exited her vehicle and ran, on foot, away from the scene. When she is found, this woman will face a massive list of charges as well as face the likely situation that those injured will seek to attain financial reparations from her. The fact that she fled from the scene indicates that she knew that the accident resulted from her negligence.
The crash is currently under investigation as the Florida Highway Patrol seeks to solidify their knowledge about the event as well as locate the woman who holds sole responsibility for the collisions.
