As Miami personal injury lawyers with decades of experience handling serious car accident cases, we found the news of a tragic wreck that occurred in Sarasota, Florida truly heartbreaking. A 2007 BMW 750 Li was reportedly traveling northbound on U.S. 301 “at a high rate of speed” at around 2:40 a.m. when the driver failed to slow down while turning right onto University Parkway. The vehicle wound up cutting through the grass along the shoulder of the Parkway and crashed into an embankment. The high rate of speed caused the vehicle to become airborne ultimately coming in contact with a railroad support pole located on nearby railroad tracks. The vehicle then became engulfed in flames.
An innocent passenger’s life was extinguished in the accident. The victim was a Sarasota resident only 40 years young, according to a news report on Patch.com written by Ethan Levine.
Our deepest condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends. Losing someone you love is never easy, especially when the loss is sudden and completely unexpected.
