A Palm Beach County congressional candidate was seriously injured in a car crash that killed the driver of a second vehicle, his campaign officer said.
The 37-year-old was the passenger in a car driven by a friend when a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction struck them on Highway 17 in Delray Beach. They were going to Riviera Beach where the 37-year-old was to receive an award from a medical organization, his campaign officer said.
A Campaign spokesman said, the 37-year-old will definitely stay in the race.
“He’s determined, if not more than ever, to get back on the trail,” the spokesman told The Post and the Florida Highway Patrol officials. FHP told the same newspaper, “There is no doubt he will make a strong recovery.”
The victim had broke his back and several ribs, and sustained injuries that required him to undergo major surgery including the removal of a portion of her small intestine and part of his colon, his campaign said in a statement.
A main artery in one of his legs collapsed and he will require additional surgery and will be hospitalized for two weeks.
FHP said, the crash which happened on Highway 17 is still under investigation and promise not to leave any table unturned.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality. 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.”
