Women Sustain Serious Injuries in Manatee County Accident

A May 31 car accident in Manatee County resulted in serious injuries to both drivers involved.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:55 a.m. on U.S. 41, close to State Road 45. The drivers were a 61-year-old Bradenton woman and a 62-year-old Parrish woman, the former in a 2010 Hyundai Accent and the latter in a 2018 Toyota Rav4.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the woman in the Rav4 was stopped at a stop sign exiting the Bayside Pet Resort, near the intersection of 41 and 45. While turning left onto the road, she entered the path of the other driver, who was in the left lane at the time. The two vehicles collided, resulting in debris spreading around the surrounding area.

Both drivers were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital to be treated for serious injuries. The woman in the Rav4 received a citation for a right-of-way violation.

Yield to vehicles with the right of way

Among the many causes of car accidents, one of the most common is a failure to yield to a driver with the right of way. This generally happens when making left turns or at intersections. Drivers must know and obey right of way laws, as a failure to do so could result in liability for any crashes and resulting injuries.

Traffic tickets that indicate a person violated the right of way count as proof of liability on the part of a defendant, which removes some of the hurdles a plaintiff must overcome to secure compensation in a personal injury claim. For further guidance, speak with an experienced Bradenton personal injury attorney at Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh.
