Fiery crash leaves on Florida driver dead

It started with a stolen car and ended with an innocent life being taken away. Police say a 19-year-old Florida man stole a Honda Acura and was driving at a high rate of speed when he ran a red light and slammed into another vehicle. The collision sent the other vehicle careening into a nearby business, where the car caught fire and killed the person inside.

In the Acura, police also found a stolen weapon. The 19-year-old driver of the stolen Acura was arrested and charged a range of crimes including driving with a suspended license, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and vehicular homicide.

For the family of the innocent motorist, the arrest of the suspect is probably little consolation. They are undoubtedly devastated emotionally from the loss of their loved one, who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. They may also be facing a slew of bills from the accident including medical expenses to funeral costs, plus the loss of wages their loved one may have provided.

For families like this one, an attorney can be an invaluable help. A personal injury lawyer may be able to conduct his or her own investigation into any car accident to determine fault, whether it's the other driver, a manufacturing defect in the vehicle or unsafe road conditions caused by the city. An attorney can use all of these avenues in an effort to get the compensation the victims of crashes like these deserve.
