Florida Woman Drives Car Into Plasma Center

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 28, 2014

On Saturday, October 25, a woman rammed her car into the DCI Biological facility in Jacksonville, Florida. The woman was upset that DCI would not accept her as a client to donate blood plasma, and a short time later, returned in her vehicle and crashed into the building.

Pamela Miller, who is 35 years old, is facing charges from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Miller was taken to the hospital after the incident and treated for minor injuries. Later she was charged with aggravated battery, as nine people were injured due to her actions.

Miller went to the DCI center on Saturday morning and tried to donate plasma. Plasma donation centers are different than blood donation centers, in that they harvest the actual plasma from the blood and then compensate donors monetarily. Blood donation drives for blood to be used at hospitals and emergency rooms is provided by donors for free. Therefore, many low-income individuals and people needing extra cash will donate plasma for the money.

Miller was upset that the center would not accept her as a donor, the reasons for which were not disclosed by DCI due to privacy reasons. She then got into her Honda Accord and some witnesses say she took some medication or pills. Her boyfriend did not get into the vehicle, and he was not in the car when it crashed. Miller drove about forty feet and slammed into the DCI center. As noted earlier, nine people were injured from glass and other debris.

Reasons for the crash are not clear at this time. Police are continuing to investigate.
