1 Person Killed in Crash at Bradenton Intersection

One person died and two more were hospitalized with severe injuries after a major accident in Bradenton on Friday, June 1.

Police and paramedics received a 911 call just after noon on the day of the accident, and rushed to the intersection of Cortez Road and 43rd Street West. The accident involved two cars. Both drivers and a passenger had to be rushed to a nearby hospital.

An 86-year-old man from Bradenton died in the accident — he was the passenger in a vehicle driven by his wife. The woman and other driver were taken for treatment at Blake Medical Center.

Police launched a traffic homicide investigation in the wake of the accident, but it is not expected that there will be any criminal charges filed. According to police, the woman was driving her Lincoln Town Car and made a U-turn from the left turn lane on the westbound section of Cortez while the light was green. She did not yield to the oncoming Chevrolet Sonic heading east, causing the collision.

Failure to yield accidents can be serious

Failure to yield accidents are among the most common types of auto accidents, and can be especially serious because they tend to involve collisions with oncoming traffic. All drivers are expected to yield to other vehicles with the right of way, including at green lights to oncoming traffic when trying to make a turn.
