A Broward County congressional candidate, was seriously injured in a car crash that killed the driver of a second vehicle, her campaign spokesman said.
The 47-year old, was the passenger in a car driven by a friend when a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction struck them on Highway 17 in Coral Springs. They were going to Pembroke Pines where the 47-year old was to receive an award from a medical organization, her campaign spokesperson said.
A Campaign spokesman said the 47-year old will definitely stay in the race.
“She’s determined, if not more than ever, to get back on the trail,” the spokesman told The Post and the Florida Highway Patrol officials. “There is no doubt she will make a strong recovery.”
The victim had broke her back and several ribs, and sustained injuries that required her to undergo major surgery including the removal of a portion of her small intestine and part of her colon, her campaign said in a statement. It said a main artery in one of her legs collapsed and that she will require additional surgery and will be hospitalized for at least two weeks.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a congressional candidate, which ultimately, resulted in the death of a driver and serious injuries to the congressional candidate. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and 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.
