An 18-year-old in Indian River County faces charges of vehicular manslaughter in a crash that killed her younger sister and a key piece of evidence against her may be an Instagram video she was livestreaming before, during, and after the crash, reports The Post.
The Winter Beach teen was driving a car that veered off a road, hit a school bus and overturned, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Her 14-year-old sister, was killed after being ejected, and another 14-year-old was badly injured but is expected to survive. Police say both were in the back seat, and neither girl was wearing a seatbelt.
The driver and 23-year-old passenger were both transported to a nearby hospital. The driver will be facing charges. Police believe that alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a young girl, which ultimately, resulted in the death of the victim. We 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. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
