A two-vehicle accident occurred on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, at around 9:30 p.m. on U.S. 301 at the Lake Saint Charles Boulevard intersection in Riverview, Florida.
As per the Florida Highway Patrol, a 61-year-old Riverview driver was heading north on U.S. 301 in a car with a 31-year-old woman in the passenger seat. The other car’s driver, an 18-year-old Riverview driver, was heading in the opposite direction on U.S. 301. The 61-year-old driver turned left under a yellow caution light and the 18-year-old drove into the intersection with a green light.
According to troopers, the front end of the 18-year-old’s vehicle hit the front left of the 61-year-old’s vehicle. The 61-year-old driver and the passenger with him were not wearing seatbelts. The passenger suffered severe injuries, while the 61-year-old driver sustained minor injuries. The 18-year-old driver was wearing a seatbelt, but he too suffered severe injuries.
The 61-year-old man was charged for making an inappropriate left turn.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the car driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
