Early Sunday moring, firefighters were called to a single car accident on County Road 208 in Hilliard, Florida. When they arrived they found the vehicle on its driver side near a power pole.
One of the occupants was thrown from the vehicle, and the other had to be cut from the vehicle. Both died. Neither were wearing their seatbelts. The cause of the vechicle accident is unknown.
As Jacksonville injury lawyers, we see this type of scenario far too often. When a vehicle rolls over in a crash, passengers that are not seatbelted usually suffer catastrophic, if not fatal, injuries. Serious personal injuries and wrongful death can often be avoided by simply wearing a seatbelt.
