A 36-year-old woman of Martin County remained at the Delray Medical Hospital in Palm Beach County just days after the wreck in Martin County, according to a Florida Highway Patrol Sergeant.
36-year-old Atria Marshall stopped on I-75 to check on a relative that had been involved in an accident. The relative involved in the wreck was driving a Kia sedan. The trooper said Marshall got out of her car to check on the relative. A 1998 Honda Civic, driven by a 26-year old man of Martin County, was traveling south on I-75 at the time, according to a news release from the FHP.
The 26-year old had swerved to avoid the car, but instead sideswiped it and hit the woman in the process. The car rotated counter-clockwise before stopping. Authorities said Marshall landed behind the Kia after she was struck, suffering a severed leg. The FHP and the Martin County Sheriff’s Office provided tourniquets to help stabilize Marshall’s leg, according to the release.
Officials said downpours in the area prevented the 26-year old from seeing the Kia initially. “He did not see Marshall until the last second,” FHP said.
The 26-year old remained on the scene. FHP said charges in the crash are still pending.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious pedestrian accident involving one vehicle, which left the leg of a woman severed. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the unfortunate 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.”
