Police Suspect Alcohol a Contributing Factor in Orlando Auto Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 29, 2012

A driver traveling the wrong way down a one-way street in downtown Orlando who had to be cut out of his automobile after an accident may now face DUI charges, according to Orlando police. Police say the recent accident closed the intersection of Garland Avenue and Amelia Street for an hour after the man rolled his Toyota with such force that firefighters had to cut the roof off the car to extract the man and treat him for injuries. If blood tests indicate that the man was legally drunk at the time, the accident scene is especially ironic to Orlando police. The location was the site of a press conference earlier that day where they announced a campaign to step up enforcement of drivers driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Fortunately, no other people or vehicles were involved in the accident. The man was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Event Teaches Kids about Pedestrian and Bike Safety to Prevent Accidents

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 10, 2009

A seven-year-old boy took his turn at the wheel of a FedEx truck and blew the horn on a vehicle parked near Wiles Elementary School recently. He was taking part in an exercise sponsored by Safe Kids of North Central Florida that was part of the 10th annual International Walk to School Day. This article published in the Gainesville Sun said that the boy and most of his classmates either ride their bikes or walk to school on a regular basis. Each child taking their turn behind the wheel of the truck gave them an idea of what drivers can and cannot see while traveling.

I could only see her head,” the second-grader said. “I know when I see a big truck like that to stand back so they can see me.”
