Four people in the SUV (including the driver) were transported to South Georgia Medical Center. The doctors pronounced a twenty-five-year-old woman dead, and two more passengers (two girls aged six and eight) had serious injuries from the accident. All of these people who travelled in the SUV were from Greenville, Florida Highway Patrol confirmed.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the Madison County crash.
Accidents that involve a truck are usually ending with harsh damages and severe injuries. The size of the truck contributes to this, even though the truck driver may not even have injuries.
In such cases, it’s important to call 911 and seek medical help.
Victims in such accidents face high medical bills, and their recoveries may last long. Even once they’re completely recovered, their earning capacity might be affected (especially if they suffered a severe injury such as traumatic brain injury, spine injuries and so on).
If you were involved in such an accident, contact a Florida car accident attorney as soon as possible. Filing a lawsuit, seeking a compensation claim and going through the process might be challenging and confusing, especially if you never had similar experiences before.
