Florida Highway Patrol Launches Investigation into Wal-Mart Crash

A serious accident occurred in the parking lot of Wal-Mart in Osprey, Florida, the morning of Monday, November 20. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, it occurred when an 86-year-old woman accidentally sped out of one parking lot and into the Wal-Mart lot.

The accident report states that at approximately 8:46 a.m., the woman “began to rapidly accelerate” in her 2007 Toyota Camry, speeding from the U.S. Post Office parking lot across the street into the Wal-Mart parking lot, striking a curb on her way in. Her vehicle continued to accelerate in that direction, striking another curb and then hitting another vehicle.

After the impact, the woman’s vehicle rolled over twice, striking a light pole and hitting another vehicle’s rear before landing in an upright position.

The Camry’s driver, who sustained injuries, was charged with careless driving. The 68-year-old driver of the first vehicle struck also suffered serious injuries. Both were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Citations can help in personal injury claims

Whenever you seek compensation for injuries after an accident, you must the other driver was negligent — and that this negligence directly resulted in the accident leading to your injuries. If the at-fault driver was ticketed for violating a traffic or safety law, it can help demonstrate his or her negligence.

To that end, it’s important to know whether any of the parties involved in your crash received citations or are facing criminal charges for their actions.
