A Martin County Senior Sergeant with the Florida Highway Patrol said, this tragic case highlighted the consequences of inexperienced drivers getting behind the wheel.

“This highlights the need to make sure they are suitably supervised. At the end of the day, there’s a reason you have to be 16 to get a learner’s permit and learners have stringent conditions.”

The accident occurred on Hobe Sound Road, a dirt road 12 kilometers from Port Salerno as the girls were returning from school.

An 18-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene and two of her younger sisters were transported to Martin County Hospital where also died.

A fourth passenger, a 15-year-old girl, sustained extensive but non-life-threatening injuries and remains in hospital.

A police inspector said, all four girls were thrown from the Nissan 4WD, and it appeared they were not wearing seatbelts.

After a horror day with three fatalities, Port Salerno annual road toll rose to 19.

Anyone with additional information concerning the crash is asked to contact the FHP department


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities. 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.”
