A 22-year old was killed when the four-wheel drive she was a passenger in rolled over and struck a 26-year old Palm Beach County cab driver.
The heartbroken family of a Florida backpacker was killed in a rollover while taking part in a tour. They have spoken out about their concern there is a lack of safety that could lead to other deaths on the island.
The cab driver sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Delray Medical Center in Palm Beach County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Her parents, a 43-year old woman and a 52-year old man have started a petition to try to improve safety standards for tours in the county, including ensuring anyone driving a vehicle is over 25 years-of-age and has had rigorous training before being able to drive in Fort Pierce.
“When an under 25 drives around without any restriction from the government, it is a sort of intentional way of risking the lives of people” his 52-year old dad.
The Florida Highway Patrol is still determining the actual cost of the accident, as drugs or alcohol may have been a cause of the Fort Pierce car crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in several serious injuries. 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.”
