Fatal 4-car crash occurs in Florida

A crash involving four cars occurred in Southwest Miami-Dade County on the morning of Sept. 29. The accident happened at almost 10 a.m. where Southwest 117th Avenue and Southwest 72nd Street intersect. Two cars were traveling north on Southwest 117th Avenue when two other cars were stopped at a red light on the avenue.

One of the cars that was traveling north ran into the other car, causing it to crash into the two cars that were stopped at the red light. The driver of one of the stopped vehicles was pronounced dead on the scene, while his passenger was injured in the fatal accident. The car that they were in flipped over in the accident, and the teenage passenger said that she smelled gasoline while she was trapped in the car before she was able to crawl out of the burning vehicle.

The driver and passenger of the car that caused the accident were transported to a local hospital. They are said to be in stable condition. Members of the deceased man's congregation stated that they believed that the driver who set off the chain of events may have had a medical emergency. Investigators were still trying to determine the cause of the crash at last report.

The family of the man who was killed in the accident could choose to seek compensation for their loved one's death. He could have been a primary provider for his family financially, so his death may have left them financially strained. They could potentially seek compensation for his lost earning power, medical expenses and burial expenses. A personal injury lawyer might be able to help them file their claim and launch their own investigations into the cause of the crash.
