Lake Mary, FL (March 11, 2019) - A crash on I-4 involving two motorcycles and a car left one person dead and another with critical injuries on Monday, March 11th. The crash was reported around 12:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the interstate, near Lake Mary Boulevard.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol report that a 37-year-old man from Orlando was driving eastbound in a 2006 Infiniti when he collided with a 2017 Audi. The Audi was propelled forward towards two stationary motorcycles, striking both riders. One motorcyclist, identified as 28-year-old Tamara Ennis, from Indiana, was pronounced dead at the crash scene. A second motorcyclist, 44-year-old Omar Flores, was transported to Central Florida Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
The Infiniti driver will face charges for his role in the crash. Police have said that alcohol did not play a role.
We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to the family of Tamara Ennis in this tragic Lake Mary crash. There is nothing more difficult than losing a loved one to an act of negligence on our roadways. In this case, it certainly appears as though both motorcyclists were innocent victims of another driver's mistake.
There are about eight fatal crashes per day throughout Florida. In many of these crashes, a negligent driver will take the life of another motorist who has done nothing wrong. In these cases, the family of the deceased victim will have the right to bring a wrongful death claim under Florida law. Due to the complexity of such claims, they should only be handled by a skilled and experienced attorney.
