Accident at Bus Stop Leads to Death of Elderly Man

One person was killed and another suffered serious injuries after an accident at a bus stop in St. Petersburg.

According to Bay News 9, the accident occurred Sunday, November 26 at approximately 2 p.m. An 83-year-old man and his 35-year-old grandson were waiting at the bus stop. What happened next is unclear, but the St. Petersburg Police Department believes one vehicle swerved in front of another, causing the driver of the second vehicle to swerve off the road and collide with the bus stop and the two victims.

Police are looking for the driver of the first vehicle, reported to be a light-colored SUV. Anyone with information should call 727-893-7780.

Liability a complicated issue when multiple vehicles involved

When more than one vehicle is involved in the events leading up to an accident, it can be difficult to determine who or what was at fault. For example, the driver of the second vehicle in this case could argue that although it was his/her vehicle that collided with the bus stop, the driver of the SUV would actually be at fault, considering that person initiated the event and then left the scene.

It’s worth noting that leaving the scene of an accident would also result in that driver facing potential criminal charges, if he/she was determined to be liable.

As you can see, multiple-vehicle car accidents can be incredibly complicated. To get the guidance and advice you need after a crash, meet with a skilled Bradenton personal injury attorney at Shapiro, Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez & Walsh.
