Day Care Victims Have Options After Hit-and-Run

We’ve written in the past about drivers crashing into post offices. Vehicles striking buildings are surprisingly common, but in most cases it’s either late at night when no one is inside or the bulk of the building stops the vehicle so that no one inside is hurt. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened when a car struck a day care center near Orlando. One girl was killed and a dozen children were injured in the crash. The day care center was operating normally when an SUV slammed into a car outside. The car flew forward from the impact, passing completely through the wall and into the building. A total of 14 people were injured. Police have not released many details of … Continue reading

School Bus Accident In Greenacres Warns of Busy Morning Rush

The morning commute is a busy time for our roadways here in South Florida. Even with the best road conditions, accidents are unfortunately apart of those few hours after dawn – congested intersections, a larger pedestrian presence and hurried drivers can all be factors. A collision involving a school bus and another vehicle, just before 8 am, brought 57th Avenue in Greenacres to a stop for at least an hour. Two of eleven children traveling on the bus were taken to an area hospital without major injuries, while a third child who was in the involved SUV , was flown by Trauma Hawk to Delray Medical Center. According to officials, the bus sustained minor back-end damage, while the SUV had … Continue reading

Basic Caution Can Pre-Empt a Debilitating Injury

As accident lawyers, we often find ourselves dealing with real-life tragedies. A car accident can take a driver, passenger or pedestrian from a normal healthy life to a lifelong disability—or worse—in seconds. However, in many cases the severity of an accident can be reduced by following basic safety tips and driving with caution. That’s exactly what happened in two San Diego accidents that have a silver lining. The first accident involves an SUV that tumbled down an embankment while traveling an estimated 70 mph. No alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident. The driver, Lindsey Michelle Woods, was speeding past slower cars when she tapped her brakes and suddenly lost control of her Jeep Cherokee, causing her to swerve … Continue reading

Disabled Veteran to Stand Trial For Fatal La Jolla Accident

At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we wish there was a way to keep accidents from happening. While many factors can cause a crash, such as weather and traffic conditions, those that involve operator negligence are the hardest to comprehend. Driving while intoxicated or failing to adhere to rules of the road can carry heavy penalties, including hefty fines, jail time and license revocation. This week, disabled Air Force Veteran Soranon Boopanon was ordered to stand trial on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of drugs. According to the Deputy District Attorney, Boopanon was driving while taking four depressants, including Valium, when she ran a red light on La Jolla Village Drive and caused a chain reaction … Continue reading

Driver on Meth Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

Operating a vehicle is a privilege and one that should be taken on with responsibility and defensive driving techniques. Getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol impairs proper judgement and reaction time that is necessary to be a safe driver. We are saddened to learn about accidents caused by operator negligence, especially when these bad decisions involve innocent passengers. Not only do drug or alcohol related crashes wreak havoc on victim’s families, they also carry heavy penalties. Such is the case on Monday when Robbie Dean Gillespie, 45, of Rancho Bernardo, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, following a June accident that killed his 19-year-old passenger Evelyn Courtney. Gillespie and Courtney collided with a … Continue reading

Drunk Driver Sentenced to 9 Years After Fatal Alpine Crash

We wish accidents never happened at all, but sadly they are apart of our lives. Heavy traffic and unfavorable weather conditions, which sometimes affect Southern California, can contribute to collisions. However some accidents might be avoided altogether, such as those involving drivers under the influence. Not only is it illegal to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, drinking and driving restricts vision and hearing, delaying reaction time. As a result, penalties for those under the influence while driving are heavy and can include hefty fines and long prison sentences. Not only are the negligent drivers involved, victims and their families are left to pick up the pieces. Such is the case when Angela August, 25, and Jimmy Arevalo, 59, were … Continue reading

Beach Road Joggers Hit by Juno Neighbor

In South Florida, we are in the height of season. Our mild winter temperatures and miles of beaches bring people from all over the country, for months of outdoor activity. Unfortunately, the roads become busier and there are more pedestrians that need to share the space, from runners to bicyclists and those headed to the sandy dunes. Sadly, sometimes these jaunts turn into accidents like the one in Juno Beach. Joggers Clifford Davis and Deborah Morton-Hengen were involved in a tragic accident last week, while trying to cross U.S. 1, a highly-traveled, popular beach road. Their neighbor Albert Michaluk, hit the pair after stopping at the intersection of Donald Ross Road. Police believe he may have been trying to make … Continue reading

Marine Killed While Helping Accident Victim in San Diego

A U.S. Marine was killed Feb. 22 on I-8 in San Diego during a multi-car chain reaction accident. The Marine was trying to help another motorist and suffered fatal injuries when another vehicle sent him over the highway wall. The accident happened around dawn when a woman lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the concrete barrier dividing the highway, spinning to a stop. In the following minutes, three more cars failed to see the stranded vehicle and slammed into it, causing a pileup. One of those vehicles was a truck driven by two Marines on their way to a recruiting depot. Although they fell victim to the accident, they apparently were not badly hurt in the collision. They … Continue reading
