Jarrod Branscum, 22, was killed in a head on collision on the Seven Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys.
According to the Florida Highway patrol, Lt. Kathleen M. Mckinney, a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling south on the Seven Mile Bridge when it veered into the northbound lane and collided with a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer.
The driver of the Mitsubishi, identified as 22 year old Jarrod Branscum of Homosassa, was declared dead at the scene. The other driver was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
Charges against the driver are pending according to FHP. The Seven Mile Bridge was closed for several hours during the traffic investigation.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left one person dead and another injured. Head-on accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are 100% preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you, except brace for impact. Our deepest condolences go out to the family that lost a member in this terrible accident.”
