A Broward County teen who was charged with manslaughter following a high-speed crash has been released on bail under strict conditions.
Those conditions include forfeiting her license, reside with her parents in Cooper City, attend any GP-directed medical appointments and report to police three times per week.
She also cannot apply to hold a license in any state.
The 18-year old teen was charged with manslaughter and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing grievous bodily harm over the crash at the intersection at Cooper City and Hillsboro Beach in Broward County.
It is alleged the 18-year old turned her headlights off before she accelerated through a stop sign at the intersection and crashed into another vehicle.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 37-year old, sustained serious injuries in the crash. His passenger, a 34-year old, was killed instantly in the collision.
The 18-year old teen was initially denied bail in the Broward County Magistrates Court, but took her bid for freedom to one of the state’s highest courts.
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.”
