A car accident in Florida can be a very serious, life-altering event. In many cases, drivers are injured through no fault of their own. Negligent driving such as texting while driving, driving under the influence, and speeding, can all cause catastrophic accidents to occur which injure and even kill innocent victims. Police will continue to investigate this crash in order to determine a cause.
