A double-vehicle crash, involving a 2022 BMW 740i and a 2008 Honda Civic, occurred on County Road 448 at Shirley Shores Road in Lake County, at around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct 29, 2022.

A Note from Attorney Mangal:

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.
