FT PIERCE, Fla. – The family of a Florida tourist, who was killed in a rollover while taking part in a tour, has spoken out about the lack of safety that could lead to other deaths on the island.
A 22-year-old was killed when the four-wheel-drive tour vehicle he was a passenger in struck a 36-year-old Palm Beach County cab driver.
The cab driver, according to the Florida Highway Patrol, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
His parents, a 43-year-old woman and a 52-year-old man, have started a petition to try to improve safety standards for tours in the county including ensuring anyone driving a tour vehicle is over 25 years of age and had rigorous training before being able to drive in Fort Pierce.
“When an under 25-year-old tour guide drives around without any restrictions from the government it is risking the lives of people,” his 52-year-old dad said.
The Florida Highway Patrol, however, is still on the verge of determining the actual cause of the accident as drugs or alcohol may have been a cause of this crash.
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.”
