More than $5,000 has been raised for the family of a 9-year-old girl who died in a car crash in Martin County moments after taking her first-day-of-school photo.
The nine-year-old girl, whose identity is yet to be released, was pronounced dead at the scene while her 16-year-old brother and two other passengers were transported to the hospital following the crash, according to FHP.
Reports say a 32-year old was driving the girl, her brother and a three-year-old passenger when the car collided with an eighteen year old driver’s pickup on Farm-to-Market 225 near Jupiter Island.
The 18-year old driver turned left into oncoming traffic, the two vehicles collided and the 32-year old’s car spun clockwise partially off the road in the northbound lane.
A Facebook fundraising page was created by a family friend to help raise money for Crustner’s funeral expenses with the goal of $10,000.
FHP reports that the victim’s brother is still in the hospital in ICU in critical condition.
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, resulted in the death of a 9-year-old girl and caused critical injuries to two other people. 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.”
