A driver died when he was thrown from a Jeep in an accident that occurred Saturday afternoon on February 5, 2022 in Sumter County, Florida.
A Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report revealed that at the time of the crash, the 34-year-old man was driving his Jeep Wrangler eastbound on County Road 476, west of County Road 476B, when he lost control of his vehicle.
The Jeep moved onto the south shoulder of the road and the man over-corrected. His vehicle traveled across the road twice before leaving the road and then overturned after hitting a wood line. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle and collided with a Ford F-350 – driven by a 29-year-old man from Bushnell – that was moving northbound on County Road 476B.
The Jeep driver succumbed to his injuries at the crash scene. The Ford driver and an 11-year-old girl from Webster did not sustain any injuries in the accident.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
