Florida doctor dies in alleged wrong-way crash

Authorities are still investigating a crash that claimed the life of a doctor and another individual. The doctor had been employed by the Central Florida Regional Hospital for the past 11 years. Reportedly, the car crash was caused when one of the motorists drove in the wrong lane, which resulted in a head-on collision.

The crash took place on an early Saturday morning along a major highway when the doctor was traveling home from work. A 30-year-old male driver was headed north, but was apparently in the southbound lanes when he crashed head-on with the doctor’s vehicle. Both the other driver and the doctor lost their lives as a result. Authorities do not know if alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident.

The CEO at the hospital stated that the doctor was well-known in the area and was able to touch the lives of thousands of patients. The hospital staff has sent their condolences to the doctor’s family while they continue to grieve. No other information about this tragic incident has been reported.

A car crash can be devastating to victims and their families, particularly when someone loses their life. Tragically, a doctor had his life cut short due to the alleged actions of another individual. The surviving family of the doctor has legal remedies available if they wish to pursue a wrongful death claim against the estate of the other deceased driver. Their claim may prove to be successful if evidence presented is to the satisfaction of a Florida civil courtroom. Often, families are awarded compensatory damages while they continue to mourn their untimely loss.
