An accident on Cape Street in Fort Myers is being investigated by the authorities. Del Prado Boulevard in Cape Coral was shut down for hours after a car ran into pedestrians.
According to an eyewitness, it was a domino effect of a crash sending another car into a crowd on the sidewalk. The driver of a car was struck from the rear causing it to come off Del Prado Boulevard and hit two people in a parking lot on Cape Street.
The two persons who were hit were taken to a local hospital as trauma alert patients. Their medical conditions are unknown.
The driver of the car who caused the accident on Cape Street has been taken into custody. Officers at the scene of the crash performed various field sobriety tests. She was unable to comply with the officers field tests. The car she hit was occupied by a family driving home from a Cape Coral bike shop.
The driver who was arrested said she had not done anything wrong. As she was being detained by officers, she was yelling obscenities and protesting her arrest.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “Pedestrian accidents tend to lead to more significant injuries and fatalities because of the blunt trauma to the body. Unlike a car accident that has safety systems like airbags and seat belts that can make the difference in surviving a car accident. After an accident, families often have many questions about what next steps to undertake. Although nothing can undo the pain and suffering that victims go through after an accident like this, an experienced car accident attorney will help you fight to get the compensation you deserve.”
