A wife and mother of two died when her SUV was involved in a car accident and forced off of the Buckman Bridge late Saturday night in Jacksonville, Florida. Her car landed in the St. Johns River in approximately 45 feet of water.
The driver of the car that caused the auto accident fled the scene. Witnesses followed her to an apartment on Jacksonville’s southside. That driver has been charged with DUI manslaughter.
Witnesses claim that that driver was driving erratically before the vehicle collision. She had recently been charged with several traffic offenses, including leaving the scene of another accident.
While the family will have the basis for a wrongful death lawsuit, no amount of money can ease their pain.
