Three Injured in Truck Accident on I-75 in Sarasota County, FL

Sarasota County, FL -- November 30, 2022, three people were injured due to an accident where two cars and a semi-truck crashed on I-75.

Initial details given by the Florida Highway Patrol indicated that the crash happened at around 9:45 a.m. in the area of I-75 and River Road. Police believe that a semi truck crashed into a car which went from the left lane to the center lane. The car then ran off-road, hitting several objects. a Jeep was hit by debris.

The car's driver, a Lehigh Acres man, was said to have critical injuries. The other two drivers were said to have minor injuries. Right now, additional details are unavailable.

Commentary on Truck Accident on I-75 in Sarasota County

It's entirely possible that this all happened as the initial details say, that the car moving into the center lane set all of this into motion. But sometimes, further investigations can shed light on the timing of the events such that things aren't quite as simple as they may seem at first.

A while back, for example, I handled a similar situation where a trucking company claimed their driver couldn't avoid hitting a car because it slowed rapidly in front of them without any kind of blinker. We were able to track down video footage of the crash, and their claims turned out to be completely false. Not only did our client have their blinker on at the time, but they were slowed for several seconds prior to the collision--long enough for any reasonably prudent driver to slow down or go around them. Their driver was simply not paying attention.

I'm not saying that happened here, but it may shock people to see how often initial reports completely overlook important details. Further investigations could show that the same happened here, but it's important to let the evidence speak for itself, one way or another.
