Dangerous driving leads to fatal pedestrian accident at bus stop

Public transportation provides a useful and necessary service for countless people throughout the state of Florida. While some use buses, trains and other transportation services to get to work and school, others use public transit as an alternative to driving when taking a night out for fun. While public transportation can be convenient and efficient, it does require riders to exercise some patience as they wait for coming rides.

That is just what a group of individuals were doing when they were subjected to a violent accident at a Florida bus stop. The nine individuals were waiting for their ride when several cars drove off the road and into the sidewalk, where the victims were located. One woman who was struck by one of the negligent drivers died from her significant injuries. Others who were waiting for their bus rides were taken to local hospitals for treatment for their injuries.

Though, some of the cars involved in the pedestrian accident stayed at the scene, one vehicle that was involved in hitting people drove off before law enforcement officials arrived. Police are still looking for that vehicle and its driver, so that they may learn more about what happened to cause the deadly crash.

The victims of this tragedy who are still recovering from their injuries will have a long road to recovery and may choose to seek compensation for their losses through personal injury litigation. The surviving family members of the deceased victim, though, may have a different cause of action to pursue. Wrongful death litigation gives love ones' rights to sue for their damages after losing family members in senseless tragedies, such as this one.
