A single-vehicle crash, involving a red Hyundai car, occurred on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 near Kathleen Road and Bellgrove Street in Lakeland, Florida. A 37-year-old Lakeland woman died in the crash.
According to a report from Lakeland police, the accident occurred at 12:40 a.m. when a red Hyundai four-door car was heading north on Kathleen Road. Unfortunately, the driver, identified as Shania Johnson, lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road, crashing into a concrete utility pole. Due to the impact of the collision, Johnson, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the car.
Emergency responders, including Lakeland police, Polk County Fire Rescue, and the Lakeland Fire Department, immediately arrived on the scene and initiated life-saving measures. However, despite their efforts, Johnson lost her life at the accident site.
The road had to be closed for approximately four hours after the crash. The accident is under investigation.
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.
