A pregnant 16-year-old Fort Pierce girl who was fatally wounded during an incident has died, according to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the authorities, the crash happened when St. Lucie County police were driving in Fort Pierce when they spotted a vehicle that had been reported stolen. They tried to make traffic stop, but as officers neared the car, the driver allegedly drove his car right into the police vehicle, hurting two detectives before the car sped away.
The driver crashed the car into another vehicle not far from the scene and fled on foot. First emergency responders arrived at the scene shortly after the crash happened. A pregnant teen who was a passenger in the second car was confirmed to have been fatally wounded at the scene of the crash.
Although firefighters tried to save the teen, she eventually succumbed to her injuries at a hospital. Two other passengers were hospitalized with critical injuries.
Meanwhile, police have arrested the man they believe to be the driver in Hobe Sound. Further investigations into the crash are ongoing.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a pregnant teen, which ultimately, resulted in one death and several injuries. We wish the victims 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.
