Congratulations Florida. Another person has DIED again on our dangerous roadways. As if the horrible deaths of Brittany Musumeci and Alexis Musumeci on Saturday night were not bad enough, we had to start the week with the death of 3 year Trinity Handy on S.R. 82 in Fort Myers. (Some reports lists her name as Trinity Hardy.)
This is the THIRD fatal crash on S.R. 82 this month alone! It is also the SECOND time a young child was killed. In the past four years, State Road 82 has had almost 200 accidents, 13 fatalities, and over 230 injured people.
You don’t have to be an engineer to know that is an UNACCEPTABLE amount of death and injury.
As a result, this case presents a very serious legal issue – whether or not the State of Florida has negligently made and maintained a killer roadway. This is not only a legal issue, it is also a matter of great public importance and safety.
