A daughter of a former Florida Highway Patrol sergeant has been summoned to appear in court next week to answer homicide charges over a fatal car crash.
Broward County prosecutors initially decided not to charge the 21-year old girl after her Porsche 911 sports car plowed into a minivan taxi in Broward County, leaving one woman with minor injuries and another with serious injuries according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Prosecutors initially gave the 21-year old girl two months to say why she should not be prosecuted but said she had failed to do so.
A spokeswoman for the FHP, told The Post that the 21-year old had been summoned to appear at the Magistrate’s Court in Broward County and that prosecutors expected him to attend.
Attempts to reach the 21-year old girl, were unsuccessful. Her lawyer was not immediately available for comment.
During an inquest, she said her car hit a puddle and he lost control‚ veering into the taxi‚ which in turn smashed into a barrier, describing the incident as “tragic”.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to distracted driving. “In my many years as a Personal Injury Lawyer I’ve helped many victims that were injured because someone was distracted and crashed into their vehicles. If you’ve been injured by someone because they weren’t paying attention to the road, please call me so I can help you get compensation for your damages.”
