As a 25-year-old was on his way to work when he collided with another vehicle in Indian River County.
The diesel fitter fell asleep at the wheel of his car, veering off the side of the road and rolling his vehicle and collided with another vehicle.
He hit his head and was thrown from the car, leaving him with extensive injuries and later fighting for his life in a comatose state.
He suffered broken ribs, internal punctures, spinal injuries and serious damage to his brain. He’s now receiving ongoing treatment at a hospital in Hobe Sound, Martin County.
Three passengers and the driver in the other car he hit were also taken to a nearby hospital. All three are in critical condition, according to FHP.
“When we were told, we were petrified not knowing whether he was alive or dead,” the 25-year-old man’s fiancée.
“We didn’t know what was happening, we just knew he’d been in an accident and they’d had to induce him on the side of the road.
Police are still investigating the crash.
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.”
