45-Year Old Man Killed in Bridge Accident in Clearwater

45-Year Old Man Killed in Bridge Accident in Clearwater

Some people have a fear of bridges. And now we can understand why. As a 45-year old man killed in a bridge accident.  On Saturday, September 21, 2019, a two-car accident on the Bayside Bridge left one man dead and his passenger hospitalized.
On Saturday, Melissa Calderon was driving her Lexus on the Bayside Bridge when she was hit from behind. The car that rear-ended her was a Toyota SUV driven by 45-year old Joseph Poblete.
When Poblete’s SUV hit the back of the sedan, it flipped over multiple times. Poblete and his passenger, 34-year old Laurie Poblete, were both transported to Northside Hospital. Once at the hospital, Joseph Poblete succumbed to his injuries and died. His passenger, Laurie Poblete, suffering injuries as well but did survive the accident.
There was no word as to the condition of the women driving the Lexus. Nor was there any mention of any specific cause of the accident. All the investigation revealed was that the Toyota definitely rammed into the back of Caldero’s car.
Usually, when we see a rear-end accident, we hear that the people involved walked away with minor bumps and bruises. These types of accidents usually happen at a red light or in bumper to bumper traffic. Unfortunately, in this case, the accident and the injuries were much more serious.
Car accident lawyers in Clearwater will tell you – the rear driver is almost always deemed at fault in accidents like this. There is no report of either of the drivers being under the influence. However, the investigation was still ongoing at the time the news was released.
If you or your family member are ever injured in a rear-end collision, you’re going to need to call experienced lawyers in Clearwater. Car accident victims need to focus on recovering from their injuries – not on dealing with lawyers and insurance companies.
