Woman Succumbs to Her Injuries Four Days after Crash in Manatee County, Florida
MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. — A 40-year-old woman from Bonita Springs, Florida died four days after sustaining severe personal injuries in a crash that injured five other people. According to a news report filed by NBC 2, the accident happened on US-41 near Moccasin Wallow Road in Manatee County, Florida. The woman who ultimately succumbed to her injuries she sustained in the crash was a passenger in a Sports Utility Vehicle involved in a crash with another vehicle that was turning left. Florida State Patrol troopers still have the matter under investigation at this time and have not issued any charges. Troopers are looking for additional witnesses to the crash that can hopefully provide additional facts. *
According to News-Press.com, Reports by the Florida Highway Patrol regarding the fatal crash say that an 18-year-old male was driving the SUV in which the 40-year-old and two other female teenagers, aged 18 and 19 respectively, were riding. Their vehicle, heading north, approached the intersection on US-41 in the left lane with Moccasin Wallow Road. The preliminary reports say that the 2001 Ford Explorer SUV came upon a Mini Cooper Clubman driven by a 19-year-old female with a 19-year-old female passenger that was stopped on Moccasin Wallow Road facing west. The Mini Cooper turned left onto US-41 in front of the Ford Explorer and the vehicles collided.
The two vehicles collided violently and caused the SUV to roll over on its side. The reports say that the 40-year-old woman was not wearing a seatbelt when the cars collided. An 18-year-old female in the SUV did not wear a seatbelt either. However, the woman who died four days after the crash sustained the most serious injuries. All of the other people involved in the crash in both cars sustained injuries that law enforcement officers described as minor.
Police would like witnesses to come forward with information, especially concerning the cycle of the traffic lights at the time of the crash.
