DeLand Crash Kills Parents, Leaves Children Critically Injured

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 29, 2016

On Monday, Greg and Sarah Moyers, a couple from Leadwood, Missouri, were driving down Interstate 4’s east lane, near DeLand, with two of their five children in the backseat of their Nissan when a Ford Focus, driven by the 43-year-old Charles King from New London, North Carolina, forced them off of the road and into a tree. According to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol, this happened at around 12:30pm, as the small family was on its way to the beach after spending several days at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.

The report states that the accident, which happened right at the end of the family’s vacation, killed both parents. The two children, Hailey and Sarah Moyers, aged 13 and 8 respectively, were immediately transported to Orlando’s Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women, where both were listed as being in critical condition, although it is believed that they will survive. The Florida Highway Patrol also states that all four members of the Moyers family were wearing their seat belts at the time of the incident.

Charles King did not suffer any injuries as a result of the crash, and it is not known whether or not his car even impacted the Nissan or just caused it to veer off of the road and into the tree without ever making contact.

As the Florida Highway Patrol continues to investigate this accident there will be many questions that will receive answers. Perhaps most importantly, what caused King to leave his lane of the highway and enter the lane occupied by the Moyers’ vehicle? There are any number of reasons on hand for why this could have occurred, but do any of them release him from culpability for devastating this family and their community? The death of Greg and Sarah Moyers leaves a painful absence in the lives of countless people, something that no amount of investigating can ever alleviate.

Nevertheless, this case deserves answers, and as the Florida Highway Patrol continues its investigation answers will begin to come forth, although there is no telling whether or not they will provide any sort of satisfaction to those who’s lives have been permanently affected by this tragedy.
