On Dec. 7, it was reported that a 25-year-old Florida woman was killed in an accident that occurred in Volusia County. The accident, which took place on Jan. 4 at about 3:30 p.m., involved a total of five vehicles.

Authorities stated that the woman was traveling west on U.S. Highway 92 in her 2005 Ford when she rear-ended a Ford F-150 that had stopped at a red light. This set off a chain reaction. The impact caused the F-150 truck to be pushed into the back of a Nissan Vera, which then hit the Honda Civic stopped in front of it. The fifth vehicle that was involved suffered damage after being hit by accident debris.

The woman was transported to Halifax Health Medical Center where she died as a result of her injuries. The 55-year-old male Deland resident, who was driving the Ford F-150 truck, suffered injuries that were described as serious, and he was taken to Central Florida Hospital.

Motor vehicle accidents can cause those who were involved to suffer serious injuries, including internal damage. If there is evidence that another driver was responsible for causing a wreck, such as rear-ending another vehicle after following it too closely, those who have been harmed might want to have the assistance of a personal injury attorney in seeking compensation for their out-of-pocket medical expenses, lost wages and other applicable amounts. In cases where the negligent driver has been killed in the accident, the lawsuit could name that person’s estate and insurer as defendants.
