Orlando auto accident lawyer James O. Cunningham is urging all drivers to slow down and make sure to allow plenty of space between vehicles when driving. He was reminded of the importance of people adjusting their driving habits to weather conditions and allowing adequate space between vehicles after a recent massive collision on Interstate 75 in Sarasota County. The accident occurred on I-75 near mile marker 213 during a fierce downpour and sent more than 50 people to nearby hospitals and closed the interstate for more than six hours. The crash involved at least 47 cars in at least 12 separate crashes at the site.
The investigation continues into a pileup that has killed ten people and injured several others. The crashes occurred on a stretch of I-75 near Gainesville, FL late Saturday, January 28 and early Sunday, the 29th. It has been reported that wreckage was strewn along the road for about a mile, and the highway was closed for hours. One survivor said that the scene looked “like the end of the world.”
