Two Drivers Killed in Head-on Crash on Dale Mabry Highway

traffic accident police report

An SUV was driving in the wrong direction on Dale Mabry Highway when it smashed a sedan, killing both drivers. The crash on Dale Mabry Highway happened near Hunt Road around  3 a.m. on March 2.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a twenty-four-year-old driver was going south down the highway when she moved into the northbound lanes, where she hit directly another vehicle. It’s not known why the driver moved into the northbound lanes.

The woman and the other driver, a twenty-three-year-old woman from Tampa, were killed at the scene of the crash on Dale Mabry Highway.

Direct collisions often end with fatal outcomes. The reasons for such sudden lane switches can be many from medical conditions, to distraction, falling asleep and driving under the influence. 

If something like this happens to you and you end up with severe injuries or lose a loved one, you should get legal assistance as soon as possible. The injuries in such cases can be devastating – traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, broken limbs, and so on.

The recovery will be long and the medical bills will pile up. You have the right to seek a compensation claim from the liable driver’s insurance company. In case you have lost a loved one and the driver at fault survived, you should file a lawsuit and seek a compensation claim for your loss.

Such accidents leave victims with high medical bills, lost wages, but also severe trauma, pain and suffering. For these damages, your attorney will suggest seeking non-economic damages, something that is far more challenging to count compared to physical injuries and vehicle damages.

Don’t let time slip by. Even if you aren’t able to do all these things while you’re still recovering, your attorney will help you with everything. Our team at Winters & Yonker is here for you; schedule your free case review with a Florida car accident attorney.
