Citrus County, FL (January 26, 2019) - A crash between a car and a truck in Citrus County left a woman suffering from serious injuries. The accident took place around 9:00 am on Friday, January 25th.
According to reports, a white truck was stopped at the intersection of Marcia Street and North Croft Avenue. The truck failed to yield to oncoming traffic and proceeded into the intersection. Once in the intersection, it collided with an oncoming silver car in a T-bone style collision. The silver car collided with the driver's side of the truck, leaving both vehicles in the westbound lanes of Croft Avenue.
A woman in the car was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment. Two children in the back seat sustained minor injuries in the accident. The truck driver was uninjured. Citrus County Sheriff's Deputies charged him with failing to yield at a stop sign.
All drivers have a duty to yield the right of way to other vehicles. When this does not happen and a crash occurs, the driver's negligence can form the basis of a Florida personal injury claim. Personal injury claims also arise in the case of reckless driving, impaired driving, distracted driving and speeding among others. The woman who was injured could be entitled to compensation for her injuries, including payment of her medical bills and lost wages stemming from this crash.
