Scooter Driver On Life Support After Crash, Passenger Killed
Two days after they were rear-ended in Deerfield Beach, a scooter driver is on life support and his female passenger is dead.
The impact of the crash on violently threw Giuseppe Daal and his passenger from the scooter on Northeast 48th Street, a couple blocks west of Dixie Highway, and sent the scooter sailing into the opposite lanes, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
The 37-year-old driver of the car that rear-ended them told investigators he did not see the scooter in front of him when he hit it, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said.
The 37-year-old Coconut Creek man was not injured and remained at the scene, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Daal is in the intensive-care unit at Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach with severe head, chest and lung injuries and spleen damage, his ex-wife said.
“His pupils are fixed and dilated. There’s no reaction,” she said. “He is brain dead.”
Despite their divorce, the couple lived near one another and Daal had frequent contact with their son.
“He was a troubled man, but he loved his child very, very much,” she said.
The 53-year-old was originally from Aruba. His brother and sister flew to Florida in hopes of seeing their brother before he died, said Melissa Daal.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
