If you are like a lot of people in Florida, you look forward to the summer months for all of the celebrations and freedom to be enjoyed at that time of year. However, you are also likely aware that summer holidays and festivities offer yet more opportunities for people to consume alcohol and still make the choice to drive. Drunk drivers continue to plague Florida's roads and highways despite the strict laws and public awareness campaigns.
Automobile accidents in Florida can occur even under the most favorable conditions. Add in a potentially hazardous factor, like decreased visibility in the dark of night, and the risk of a car wreck can go up. A crash involving three cars occurred early Saturday morning on Interstate 95, sending two vehicle occupants to the hospital in serious condition and claiming the life of a 40-year-old female driver.

On Thursday morning, an SUV pulled quickly out of a left turning lane on US-1 in Miami Florida and struck a passing car with enough force to send it briefly into the air. The force of the collision sent the SUV into a red pickup truck. It was only a matter of moments before the driver of the SUV drove off and left the scene of the accident. Fortunately for the victims of the crash, a witness to the accident had recently installed a dash cam that recorded the entire incident, the footage of which is now in the hands of authorities.
In many other areas of the country, one of the primary reasons for a slip and fall incident is because the roads were icy and not properly warned for. But what about in Florida, where icy roads aren't such a problem? Slip and fall incidents can occur indoors, as well.
