Fender bender On State Road 80 Leaves One Injured
Two women collide in a fender bender along State Road 80 in Hendry County.
Penny Jo Sweeney, 59 year old of Moore Haven, was injured in a fender bender when her KIA Optima collided with a Honda Civic in Hendry County.
The accident occurred on State Road 80 where Ms. Sweeney was eastbound on the inside lane. The driver of the Honda was also traveling along State Road 80, but in the west bound direction.
The Honda began to slow down in the left turn lane of the road, while at the same time the KIA was traveling partially on the inside and left turn lane of State Road 80, leading to an inevitable collision.
The impact of the crash sent the Honda spinning in a counter-clockwise direction, coming to rest on the westbound inside lane of the road. The KIA came to a rest in the left turn lane.
First responders were on the scene and Ms. Sweeney was reportedly transported by the Hendry County EMS to Hendry Regional Medical Center in Clewiston. She was listed in stable condition from injuries received in the collision.
Crash investigator, Trooper T. Parks, is in charge of the case as investigations are still ongoing.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately sent one person to the hospital. We wish the victim a quick recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident.
