Three Dead in Single-Vehicle Sarasota Accident

Three people died in a single-vehicle accident in the early morning hours of Sunday, February 6.

According to Sarasota police, the vehicle was heading west on Myrtle Steet when it entered the roundabout at the intersection of Myrtle and Old Bradenton Road. The vehicle was traveling at excessive speeds at the time of the accident (approximately 12:30 a.m.).

The vehicle went over the roundabout, then flew through a fence and collided head-on with a tree. Investigators said the victims were two women and one man, all friends visiting each other in the area. They died upon impact with the tree.

Police were awaiting toxicology reports on the driver before releasing any further information about the accident.

Lawsuits can still arise out of single-vehicle accidents

While the vast majority of car accident lawsuits involve multiple vehicles, there are some circumstances in which a lawsuit could be filed after a single-vehicle accident.

For example, in a case in which passengers died due to a driver’s negligence, the surviving family members of those victims could file a claim against that driver (or their estate) for wrongful death. Surviving victims of an accident could file a personal injury claim against the driver (or their estate) to recover damages that would compensate them for their medical bills and pain and suffering.

There are even some less-common circumstances in which the driver of a single-vehicle accident could recover compensation in a personal injury claim. Examples include circumstances in which the liable party is an auto manufacturer or a municipality that failed to properly care for its roads.
