Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family of Cynthia Clark following this tragic crash in Flagler County.
More than 3,000 people will lose their lives in crashes on Florida's roadways this year. This crash underscores the fact that deadly accidents can certainly take place at any time. While many people think of rear-end accidents as being minor in nature, they can certainly be very dangerous and cause serious injuries when they take place at higher speeds on major highways and thoroughfares.
