Fatal auto accident in Orange County

Two vehicles were traveling on a Florida road on a recent Tuesday morning. Neither driver made it to his or her destination. Instead, a tragedy occurred that brought teams of rescue workers and police to the scene.

One of the vehicles was a car and the other a van. At some point during their travels, the two vehicles collided. No details were provided as to what or who exactly may have caused the crash to occur. It was approximately 6:30 a.m. when Florida Highway Patrol officers responded to the Orange County collision.

Sadly, the occupant of the car suffered fatal injuries in the collision. The van driver was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment. Responders blocked off the entire area to traffic as they worked to tend to the victims and clear the debris from the crash.

Florida investigators are often met with more questions than answers when they initiate preliminary investigations after a fatal auto accident. Many times, such investigators find evidence that a driver was intoxicated or distracted at the wheel, or, perhaps, was traveling at a rate of speed above what was posted for the area. Many fatal collisions lead to litigation in civil court if an immediate family member of a deceased victim files a wrongful death claim against the person or people deemed responsible for their loved one's death. This type of litigation is typically challenging because the burden of proof rests with the plaintiff, which is why most people seek guidance and support from an experienced personal injury law attorney before heading to court.
