Shirin Ukani was killed in Coral Springs, Florida when she was struck by a 2015 Mercedes-Benz driven by Richard Antosek. What makes this case an even worse tragedy, is the fact that Ukani was 74 years old.
While the case is still being investigated, news reports indicate that Antosek may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
As we have discussed many times before in other traffic fatalities, this case may come down to a question of causation. In other words, what caused the collision between Antosek’s Mercedes and 74 year old Shirin Ukani? Did Ukani cross the street in a dangerous place? Was Antosek driving drunk?
