18-Year Old Charged For Crash That Killed 3 Others
The opioid epidemic may have claimed three innocent victims. Police say, an 18-year-old killed three sisters after his car crashed into the girls’ home in Hobe Sound. He was high on opiates.
The 18-year-old was driving a 2007 Honda Accord at a speed of 107mph when he struck a trailer, left the road and careened through a field and ditch before slamming into the home.
He had six teen and pre-teen passengers in the car. One told police he asked the 18-year-old driver to let him out of what he called “the beast” because the speeds were scaring him.
The driver faces 10 felony charges, including two counts of reckless homicide in connection with the deaths of a 14-year-old, a 12-year-old and 8-year-old.
The Post reports the girls had been watching TV on the couch. The FHP & The Post says the car entered their home with such force it nearly exited the other side of the living room. The 18-year-old has been charged as an adult and entered a preliminary plea of not guilty.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities. 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.”
