Eight Injured in Rollover Crash in Charlotte County

Eight people were injured in a rollover accident on the morning of Saturday, April 9, including several children.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident occurred in Charlotte County on State Road 31. An SUV was heading south on the road at approximately 9:30 a.m., carrying six people. It suddenly crossed over the centerline, colliding head-on with a car that was driving on State Road 31 in the opposite direction.

Five of the six people in the SUV suffered minor injuries: a 31-year old Bradenton woman, a 6-year-old boy,a  15-year-old girl, a 10-year-old girl and a two-year-old girl. There was also a 36-year-old Bradenton man in the vehicle who sustained serious injuries in the crash.

The occupants in the other vehicle sustained serious and critical injuries. At least one person had to be extracted from a vehicle, and two adults injured in the collision were airlifted to a nearby regional medical center.

Police did not immediately have any information about why the SUV crossed the center line.

Wrong-way collisions are inherently dangerous

Wrong-way collisions are dangerous because of the physics involved with head-on crashes. They’re especially dangerous at high speeds. These accidents have a much higher rate of serious or critical injuries and fatalities than many other types of accidents.

It is the responsibility of all drivers to stay on their side of the road and to be reasonably careful behind the wheel. Drivers that fail to meet this basic expectation could be liable for any resulting accidents and injuries.
