A State Road 31 Crash has resulted in the death of a thirty-two year old North Fort Myers Woman.
Ashley Lorraine Sullivan lost her life when a 2005 Ford F250 driven by a man crossed into Sullivan’s lane and collided with her 2009 Kia Optima on State Road 31.
The crash happened on the drawbridge over the Caloosahatchee River. It was unclear as to why the accident happened and it was not known if the driver of the Ford sustained any injuries.
Officials pronounced Sullivan dead at the scene of the accident on State Road 31.
It was believed that the driver of the Ford may have been under the influence of alcohol. Investigators have stated that they are in the process of testing the driver’s blood alcohol content level but no further information has been released by authorities.
There was no comment on any charges being filed at the time of this report.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, commented on the crash: “Unfortunately a woman lost her life in this incident and we offer condolences to Ms. Sullivan’s family for their loss. Each year over 10,000 people in the U.S. are killed in an accident involving alcohol. Preserving all vehicles in the accident is important to show whether the drunk driver too any evasive action. All this factors can help proving gross negligence which will entitle an injured victim to punitive damages. Every accident has specific factors that will determine its resolution. Consulting a personal injury attorney will help educate the victims’ families in this time of need.”
