Lakeland Car Crash Kills Two People

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 9, 2016

During the recent heavy rainstorms that the Lakeland area has experienced, two people died following a two-vehicle crash on the West Memorial Boulevard.

Following the accident, authorities closed the portion of the boulevard running between Brunnell Parkway and North Lincoln Avenue for over five hours. During the time, a local news station reports that traffic homicide investigators were working the crash site on the Memorial Boulevard overpass and sorting through the debris that was scattered across the road.

According to police reports, the victims included 20 year old Alexas A. Moore of Bartow and 86 year old Blannie Denmark of Lakeland. Three others were also injured in the crash, with all three being treated for trauma alert at the Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center and all of whom remain in critical condition.

Based on a preliminary investigation, Moore was the driver of a 2000 red Chevrolet Cavalier. In her car was passenger Armani T. Evans, a 22 year old from Lakeland. The other car involved in the crash was a 2011 white Jeep Cherokee driven by 68 year old Charles R. Harrelson. Denmark, along with Harrelson’s wife Rita, were the other passengers in the Jeep. Police say they believe that Moore was driving her car west on Memorial Boulevard during the heavy downpour when, near the intersection of North Walker Avenue, she lost control. According to a witness, a gray vehicle had pulled out in front of Moore’s car from North Walker, which may have been the cause of her losing control and crashing into the oncoming Jeep.
