According to NHTSA, a reportable crash happens in Florida about every 92 seconds. Unfortunately, many of these crashes will also involve death or serious injury to the victim. Negligent drivers are common in Florida and a single act of negligence can have life-changing or fatal consequences in a matter of seconds.
We wish to extend our sympathies to the family of Maya Barriera during this difficult time.
