Four killed in head-on collision with suspect fleeing police

Four people have been left dead, and a man who had been fleeing from the police was injured after a crash in southern Florida early on April 3. The car accident took place south of Fort Lauderdale on Interstate 95. The deceased victims were all passengers in a single minivan.

The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting that the collision was caused when a fleeing suspect got onto Interstate 95 and began heading north in the southbound lane of the interstate. The suspect had been running from police in a sport utility vehicle until he collided with a minivan around Hallendale Beach Boulevard. There were no survivors in the struck minivan.

Police are stating that they had already stopped the pursuit of the SUV before the driver had even gotten onto I-95. Authorities did not immediately release the names of any of the four victims. The driver who had been running from the police survived the collision and was transported to the hospital with two broken legs. Police investigating the crash had to shut down all southbound lanes on I-95 to conduct their investigation.

The public is sometimes put in danger due to criminals who feel the need to run from law enforcement, and sadly, as was the case with this accident, it occasionally leads to serious accidents and even death. The suspect might be facing serious criminal charges, but this doesn't mean that family members of the victims cannot file a lawsuit in relation to the accident. These family members now have an arduous road ahead of them, so they don't need to worry about the financial hardships that come with burying their loved ones. A personal injury attorney might be able to help an accident victim or their family recover damages after another driver's negligence causes an accident.
