Case #: 16-tr-xxxxxxx
On January 2, 2016, the Defendant was traveling on a 3 lane road in the far left lane. The Defendant attempted to changed lanes into the middle lane and lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle slid across the middle and far right lane before striking the curb. The vehicle then collided with a bus stop striking a pedestrian waiting for the bus. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital and passed away 13 days after the accident. A FHP crash investigator charged the Defendant with careless driving, but after the death of the pedestrian, the charge was upgraded to careless driving involving fatality. The firm set the case for hearing and at trial, the Defendant was found not guilty.
