It seems like dog attacks are becoming more and more frequent these days. Pet owners are not taking responsibility for their pets and letting them freely wander the streets. When that happens, the dogs injure and sometimes kill people or young children.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers have arrested a 27-year-old Lady Lake woman in connection with a drunk driving accident that injured a 2-year-old girl riding in the woman’s car. Troopers say the suspect faces numerous criminal charges, including DUI and causing serious bodily injury, leaving the scene of an accident, child neglect and other charges. The accident occurred on Grays Airport Road in Lady Lake around 9 p.m. one recent evening when the driver, who was traveling southbound in a Pontiac Grand Prix veered off the road, hit a telephone pole and mailbox and rolled over after striking a tree.
