Florida woman injures multiple people, kills 3 in car accident

If you've ever been hurt by a car crash or pedestrian accident in Florida, this case may sound familiar. This tragic incident is a good reminder of why drivers should pay attention on the roads and be sure they aren't distracted when driving. The April 4 report states that a Florida woman has allegedly killed three people in a car accident when she backed into them.

According to the story, the 79-year-old woman was leaving a church parking lot when she reversed her vehicle into a crowd of people, causing the three wrongful deaths. She allegedly believed that the car was in drive at the time. This case may surprise you, though, because the woman hasn't been criminally charged.

The news claims that there is much controversy about this story. The woman is 79, and that brings up the question of how old you have to be before you're too old to drive. Another shocking thing about the case is that she was not charged with any criminal charges despite hitting and killing three people. She also hurt a number of people in the crowd. What did she actually get for the crime? A suspension of her driver's license for a year and a fine.

Unsafe drivers shouldn't be able to get out of trouble so easily. According to the news, this woman struggled with her car before. In 2011, she was reported for driving her car into a McDonalds. She hurt no one that time, and she had to retake her driving exam to qualify for driving. She passed.

Cases like these do make you wonder if the punishments should be harsher the first time something bad happens. If so, the three deaths in the church parking lot may have been avoided. If you've been through a similar situation, you may want to consider other options for helping keep a dangerous driver off the road.
