According to the news released by Fort Myers officials, the driver of a Nissan Pathfinder rear-ended a white Toyota Corolla. The impact led to the driver of the Toyota Corolla driving off the road and hitting a tree. Both the driver and her passenger were seriously injured in the accident.
The driver of the Nissan Pathfinder appeared quite shaken by the crash. He remained at the scene as officials questioned him. He admitted to being distracted for a split second which may have caused the accident. The injured parties were taken to the nearest hospital for medical treatment.
A certain portion of the road remains closed as officials work to clear the wreckage. Drivers are advised to take alternative routes until all lanes reopen and traffic can resume it’s normal flow. The crash remains under investigation.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that led to a person sustaining critical injuries through no fault of their own. When motorists are distracted, reckless, or speeding they put the lives of others at risk. When a negligent driver causes a crash, he or she could be held accountable for the accident. An injured victim should seek out an experienced accident attorney to help with the collection of compensation for medical care, losses and damages.”
