A 1998 Isuzu pickup truck attempting to enter I-95 in Florida allegedly hydroplaned on wet pavement around 2:15 p.m. on Sept. 12, striking the right side of a box truck. The box truck crossed all lanes and hit a light pole, trapping a front-seat passenger from North Hill in the box truck and killing him.
A third vehicle, a 2013 Lincoln, was struck by crash debris. The drivers of the Lincoln and the box truck were not injured. After emergency personnel freed the box truck passenger, he was flown to Halifax Medical Center where he died.
The accident occurred in Daytona Beach in the early afternoon. The Florida Highway Patrol stated that charges are pending, but no further details were available.
A car accident victim may have to face high medical costs. If he or she is unable to return to work, he or she may have to endure a loss of income needed to pay for living expenses. Usually, through no fault of their own, an accident victim can experience life-changing physical, mental and emotional injuries. An attorney who is knowledgeable in the area of personal injury law could be able to secure compensation for the injured person. An attorney could closely examine the details of the accident, document evidence and be able to determine how the person responsible for the accident could provide payments to the injured person. Sometimes the injured person’s family may be suffering due to the injury or loss of a loved one or the loss of the income that they provided to the family. An attorney could help the family obtain compensation for their loss.
