67-Year-Old Man Killed in an Accident Following Tampa Police Pursuit


A sixty-seven-year-old man who was hit after a Tampa police pursuit of car burglary suspects has died at a local hospital. Florida Highway Patrol informs that the man from Davenport died on October 10 because of the injuries he got during the crash.

The crash occurred on Wednesday, October 7, at the intersection of US 192 and Westside Boulevard in Osceola County.  The police followed the suspects, and the pursuit started in Tampa and ended in Kissimmee.

The troopers say three people were arrested after the pursuit and collision: a 16-year-old driver, an 18-year-old passenger, and a 20-year-old male passenger.

The 16-year-old was also transported to a local hospital for injuries. The teenage driver has been charged with fleeing to escape, grand theft auto, and auto burglary.

Eighteen-year-old Alonso Maxine has been charged with auto burglary and 20-year-old Jonathan Desroches has been charged with auto burglary. The police also found a handgun on Desroches during his arrest.

Among the most common accident reasons (speeding, DUI, distractions, faulty parts, and road hazards), sometimes people end up in a car accident because of other people’s criminal activities. If you were involved in an accident where you sustained injuries (or lost a loved one in a crash) because of another person’s fault, it’s time to consult with a car accident attorney. No matter how the accident happened, being injured means that you will have to face medical treatments which will cost you money. Staying home while recovering would mean that you’ll lose wages. This is why you must hire a car accident lawyer who will help you file a compensation claim.
