In this story, two people lost their lives in a tragic accident in Orlando. The truck accident could have been prevented, and it’s clear that there could be a wrongful death case. If you’ve been hurt or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you probably know what this family is going through. A mother and daughter were killed, leaving behind those who care for them.
According to the story from May 19, the crash took place at 5:40 p.m. at Rose Boulevard and Texas Avenue. A 19-year-old male and 20-year-old male were in a 2008 Nissan traveling south on Texas Avenue, and a 2013 Toyota Camry was traveling east. It’s been reported that the Camry holding the 49-year-old woman and her 23-year-old daughter were stopped at a stop sign before entering the intersection of the two roads.
At that point, the Nissan that was being driven by the 19-year-old male struck the left side of the Camry, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Unfortunately, the impact was so severe that the mother and daughter were both killed as a result. The 19-year-old male was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, and the 20-year-old was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with injuries as well.
The 19-year-old male did provide blood samples to the troopers voluntarily, according to the news. An investigation is ongoing, but police have reported that charges are pending against the surviving driver. It’s not clear yet if he went through a light or stop sign without stopping, but he would have hit the driver’s side of the vehicle when crossing the intersection.
