Florida expressway closed after fatal collision

As devastating as the effects of a car accident can be for those involved and their families, the consequences can be much more far-reaching. A predawn car crash involving two vehicles on Florida's Sawgrass Expressway earlier this week killed one driver and injured another. Not only that, but a portion of the expressway also remained closed for five hours thereafter due to debris from the crash blocking the southbound lanes. 

Because the crash is still under investigation, authorities could not release any information as to its cause. However, they were able to describe what they found at the scene. They observed one of the vehicles facing east in the center lane after rolling over. Its driver, a 37-year-old woman, escaped the crash with only minor injuries. It is not known whether she went to the hospital or received any medical treatment. The other vehicle had collided with a guardrail, resulting in damage to its front. It had also sustained heavy damage to its rear. Authorities found it facing east in the grass median. Its driver, a 38-year-old woman, did not survive. 

Southbound lanes of travel reopened approximately five hours after the collision. In the interim, ancillary roads leading to and from the expressway saw near-gridlock conditions, and the partial closure resulted in heavy delays all morning for southbound commuters. 

It is unclear whether authorities intend to file any criminal charges in relation to the accident. Nevertheless, victims and family members experiencing the ill effects of a motor vehicle accident may wish to contact an attorney to discuss their legal options.
