We are saddened to hear of this fatal and tragic accident. At this time, our thoughts are with the family and friends of Marquise Jenkins.
In Florida, a fatal crash takes place approximately every 3 hours. Fatal crashes usually involve some form of driver error, whether it be impairment, drowsiness, distraction, or reckless driving. In this case, it appears as though speeding ultimately caused the fatal collision which cost the lives of the driver and the two passengers.
