Drunk driver caused fatal wrong-way accident, police say

A recent three-car crash on University Avenue left one man dead. Police now say the man responsible was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

The crash, which occurred late Saturday night, happened when a Chevy Tahoe heading Northbound careened into the Southbound lane directly towards oncoming traffic.

The Tahoe collided with two other vehicles, a Nissan Rouge and a Ford Flex. The 67-year-old man driving the Nissan was found dead at the scene.

According to Police, the drunk driver that caused the accident also had a suspended license.

“He wasn’t even supposed to be driving,” Officer Otishia Browning-Smith, a spokeswoman for the Sunrise Police Department, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Police closed down the Southbound lane as they got the scene of the crash under control. The accident is still being investigated.

Being involved in a serious car accident can change your life; you may suffer serious injuries, mental trauma, job loss, and medical debt as a result.

The road back to normalcy can be a long, arduous process that may put you and your family under tremendous strain.

Thankfully, Florida law creates a cause of action for those injured because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another party.

A successful personal injury lawsuit may result in a considerable financial award for the victim and their loved ones.

The first step is meeting with an experienced personal injury attorney. They understand the subtleties of the law and know what evidence is required to prove your case.

Victims shouldn’t hesitate to take action. Florida imposes a four-year statue of limitations on personal injury lawsuits.
