A series of collisions that occurred on Thursday night in north Florida killed one woman and two horses, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The woman stopped to offer help to a driver who had just hit and killed a horse on U.S. 301 in Nassau County (north of Jacksonville on Florida’s Atlantic Coast), a highway patrol accident report informed.
As she was offering to help the man, another vehicle hit a second horse that was in the road and veered into the woman. Both the woman and the horse were killed on the scene.
Troopers said they are still investigating where the horses came from.
The police have not released the name of the woman. The collisions closed the road for several hours on Thursday night.
The police continue the investigation.
Vehicles hitting people is not a new thing. Such accidents happen all the time, and even when people are careful and only try to help another person on the road.
Fatal outcomes in accidents like this happen quite frequently. But, do people really know what to do if they survive such a crash?
Most injured pedestrians don’t know that they should file a lawsuit and seek compensation claims for their injuries.
The best way to do it is by hiring a pedestrian accident attorney or personal injury attorney who has experience with such cases.
Seeking the claim is a long and complicated process that requires someone who knows what they are doing. Going through it by yourself will cost you nerves, time, and energy.
Make sure you have a skilled car accident lawyer by your side.
