A 15-year-old boy from Palm Beach County was left with life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a car while crossing a street to deliver food to a homeless man in Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County, Florida Highway Patrol reports.
Several family members are said to have seen the accident, the victim’s aunt said. Others had crossed the street ahead of the victim, she added.
As he headed across, entering a turn lane, the report says the victim suddenly looked terrified and darted into the path of a vehicle.
Florida Highway Patrol officials, who say speed and alcohol do not appear to be factored in the crash, found the victim lying unconscious on the road. He was later taken to the hospital.
He would give his clothes and shoes to friends in need and was bringing fresh fruit to a homeless man he had seen the day before when the accident occurred. “If all of us were more like him, this world would be so different,” adds his aunt.
The Florida Highway Patrol Department said, the car accident is still under investigation and encourages anyone with relevant information relating to the crash to contact the Department.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in 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.”
