A fun sleepover for a group of young friends turned to tragedy when six girls witnessed a double fatality that claimed the life of their friend.
In a video evidence before a District Court jury in Martin County, a girl told how she and her girlfriends were waiting on the side of Hobe Sound Hwy for their 15-year old friend to arrive with her mother when a green car struck their car as it began to turn into a driveway.
“She a friend yelled out for us to run. I remember feeling the glass from the cars hitting the back of my neck and my legs,” she said.
The 15-year-old and her 43-year-old mother died as a result of the injuries suffered in the crash.
A witness was driving west on the Hobe Sound Hwy when cars in front slowed, causing him to slow.
The witness said, the car overtook him, crossing broken lines on a straight section of the highway. He said, he was five or six cars back when he saw the car collide with a small blue car that was indicating to turn right.
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.
