Woman Dies near Ormond Beach after Car Flips onto Tree

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 16, 2016

Sarah Comer, a Port Orange resident, was driving eastbound on Walter Boardman Road on Sunday afternoon when she lost control of her car. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Comer, who was 30-years-old at the time of the incident, was near to Old Dixie Highway and Ormond Beach when the incident occurred at around 12:00pm, causing the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu she drove to depart from the road and begin to flip through the air.

The accident, which is still under investigation, involved no other automobiles, and is being described as a single-vehicle accident. The report from the Florida Highway Patrol goes on to say that Comer’s automobile kept flipping along the side of the road until its roof lodged on a single tree. It was in this position that the emergency response vehicles discovered the car and attempted to pull Comer to safety. Unfortunately, Comer had not been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident and was subsequently trapped in the car. Despite the best efforts of the emergency response teams, they were unable to free her. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Comer undoubtedly leaves behind family and other loved ones who will be asking the same question of the coming weeks: what happened and why? As of this moment, it is not known what caused Comer to lose control of her vehicle. Perhaps it was due to something in the road that distracted her, or maybe a malfunction with the automobile itself. Another nagging question that will follow those left behind is whether or not Comer would have survived had she been wearing her seatbelt. While that may be the case, the best we can do under these circumstances is toss out hypotheses that have no impact on the reality of the situation. Sarah Comer has passed away in an accident that should not have occurred. This happens to people every day, all across the country. There is no way to prepare for it, and the events are difficult to fathom once they have happened.
