Accidents can happen anytime, and usually when we least expect it. On March 20, a newly retired hospital executive was on vacation in Tampa with his wife when a car hit them while they were walking on the sidewalk. The couple was rushed to the hospital, and though his wife survived, the executive died within hours.
Further investigation showed that the driver had some sort of medical episode that caused him to swerve onto the sidewalk, jump the curb near the Harbor Island Bridge, and knock over two poles and the pedestrians. This is a sober reminder that even the most careful drivers can cause accidents.
