A 20-year-old Wellington woman was killed in a vehicle crash on Florida’s Turnpike, the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
According to FHP, the victim was a passenger in a Lexus SUV driven by a 20-year old woman of Pembroke Pines. The victim’s identity is yet to be disclosed by the authorities, the Palm Beach Post reported.
The 20-year old woman was southbound on the turnpike on the inside left lane, south of Palm Beach Gardens, when she lost control of the vehicle at a curve. She veered into the median, spun out of control and struck a Toyota Corolla in the median. The SUV rolled over a nearby guardrail into northbound lanes and overturned twice.
The victim, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown out of the vehicle, Florida Highway Patrol officials said. The 20-year old driver suffered serious injuries, as did a 17-year-old also riding in the vehicle.
There were three additional people in the car, who suffered minor or no injuries. They included an 18-year-old woman of West Palm Beach, who suffered minor injuries.
The crash is not alcohol related, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a passenger, which ultimately, resulted in her death. 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.”
