Four Seriously Injured When Police Chase Ends With Collision in Miami Gardens
In Miami Gardens recently, a driver led police on a chase that covered two counties and injured four people. The chase ended when the driver of a white Cadillac ran a red light at the intersection of State Road 441 and Miami Gardens Drive and collided with a Nissan Sentra and another vehicle. The driver of the Cadillac was taken into custody following the accident.
The driver fled police for quite a distance. At one point it is reported that he tried to run over three Broward County Sheriff Deputies while they tried to pull him over. One of the officers was struck trying to get out of the way.
Four victims in the crash were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. All four were seriously injured as a result of the accident, but all are expected to recover.
The driver of the Cadillac faces charges of aggravated assault, fleeing and evading police, reckless driving and making an improper U-turn.
Several factors led to this accident and the subsequent injuries. A lawyer experienced in personal injury knows what questions to ask to sort through the issues of legal liability.
If you have been injured as the result of an accident caused by a reckless driver, it is a good idea to have an expert takes a look at your claim. A Plaintiff in a civil lawsuit against a reckless driver may be eligible not only for compensatory damages that helps make them whole again, but also punitive damages, that punish the defendant for causing the accident and injury in the first place. Punitive damages can be attached to the person. They often include wage garnishment and attachment to property.
