Members of the family are asking the public to assist them in finding the hit-and-run driver who caused this serious crash. 

A member of the family gave his own account of the crash:

According to Mike Babb, “A car side-swiped us and sent our car into the outside guardrail.”  He also added that he thought they were going to fall right off the bridge but, miraculously, they got jerked back into traffic and then hit the inside wall.

The following were survivors were in the vehicle: Mike Babb’s sister and brother-in-law, nephew and his nephew’s wife. The family had been to a performance of Disney on Ice at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Downtown Jacksonville and afterwards decided to visit a local restaurant when the unexpected happened.

The driver of the hit-and-run car had veered off his lane and came right into their lane. Mike Babb’s brother-in-law was the driver of the family vehicle. 

Babb’s sister, Debbie Sansing, was severely injured.  She is in the hospital receiving treatment for a shattered hip, according to Mike Babb. She’s had to undergo surgery and will be in the hospital for about a week and then rehab starts.

A tragic loss was also averted as a member of the family, Jerica Sansing, Babb’s Nephew’s wife is expecting a child. Thankfully, the baby is okay. It was said that Jerica Sansing is three months pregnant.

Comments:

Anidjar & Levine’s senior partner, Marc Anidjar, comments on this accident:  “This is an unfortunate accident that is devastating to the Babb family.  In our firm, besides what local law enforcement would do to conduct an investigation, we would dispatch our own team to try and find clues.  We would do everything possible to canvas the crime scene, look for private video footage, and question local residents and commuters.  This should all be done as soon as possible after the accident to insure that the guilty driver is identified and will take responsibility for their actions.  Our deepest sympathies go out to the Babb family that is trying to deal with this terrible crash.”
