A young woman was killed and three people were injured when the car they were riding in crashed into a Martin County home, Florida Highway Patrol said.
The accident happened on Westbound Road near a shopping mall in Martin County.
The 19-year-old woman was a passenger in the 2004 Acura that was carrying three others at the time of the crash.
The car was speeding east down Westbound Road when the driver tried to make a sharp right turn onto the Eastbound Road police said. The driver lost control of the vehicle, causing the car to slide off the road as it was rounding the turn.
The car then slammed into the garage of the house.
“We heard a loud bang and then a man screaming,” said a 51-year old man, who lives next to the crash site.
“Every car goes too fast on this road, she said. “About three years ago a car crashed into my yard. It is crazy here.”
The woman died at a hospital. The three others were treated for non life-threatening injuries.
No one in the house was injured, police authorities said. The crash is under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a vehicle that crashed into a home, which ultimately, resulted in the death of a young woman and caused injuries to few others. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victim can have a closure. 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.”
