A BMW driven by a 31-year-old collided with a bus that had been forced onto the wrong side of the road. It happened in Boynton Beach, Palm Beach County.
The 12-year-old was in the car with her mom on her way to school. Amazingly, she emerged relatively unscathed. The 31-year-old, who was cut out of the wreckage by firefighters, suffered multiple fractures as well as a shattered pelvis and damage to her arteries resulting in near-fatal blood loss.
It was later discovered she had broken her neck in a so-called hangman’s fracture injuries.
The 31-year-old initially suffered from memory loss and delusions. She was confined to the ICU for three weeks, where she had a tracheotomy and a so-called halo apparatus screwed into her head for support. Her husband calls it a personal portable prison cell.
Her 43-year old husband, who took time out from his job to be at his wife’s side after the accident, the most testing moments were dealing with his feelings of being powerless and unable to directly improve her condition.
Two people on the bus were confirmed dead while over 12 were left injured in the crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol Department. Their identities have not yet been revealed.
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.”
