33-Year Old Social Worker Dead After Indian River County Car Crash

A prominent social worker has tragically died in a two-car accident in Indian River County.


News of her death left the county’s high profile NGO community in mourning.

The Social worker from Melbourne, was traveling in a mini-van when it hit another vehicle in southwest Fellsmere province.

“It is with great sadness that I write to notify you of a tragic car accident, resulting in the deaths of four of our colleagues,” FCF said in a closed online statement to its members.

The 33-year old also studied at RMIT and previously worked for child protection organization Friends International.

According to the Post the driver hit a Honda Accord car when the breaks failed.

The Florida Highway Patrol officials said the driver escaped injury but he confirmed one other woman was killed while the survivors were taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for Save the Children confirmed the death and a separate statement to members said the immediate families had been notified.

“I would ask that you please delay in contacting these families to ensure we do not overwhelm them during this incredibly challenging time,” the spokesperson said.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a social worker, which ultimately, resulted in fatal injuries. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
