Driver allegedly runs stop sign, kills 25-year-old woman

A car accident in Florida left one woman dead on Monday, April 3. The woman was just 25 years old at the time, and she was from Lehigh Acres.

According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, the woman was heading south, driving down Williams Avenue. She got to the intersection with West 9th Street, which has a stop sign that controls traffic on that road. As she went through, police say that another driver ran that stop sign, slamming directly into the side of her vehicle.

The young woman did not have a seat belt on at the time of the crash. Her injuries were so severe that she could not even be taken to a local medical center, but passed away at the crash scene.

The reports also say that the man who ran the stop sign was 54 years old. Like the woman, he was from Lehigh Acres. He was hurt in the accident, but his injuries are said to be minor. He was taken to Lehigh Regional to get medical treatment. It's worth noting that he was driving a pickup truck. Whether or not he had a seat belt on was not reported.

The Florida Highway Patrol does intend to charge the man, saying those charges are pending right now. They indicated that the accident happened in the middle of the day, right after one in the afternoon.

When drivers are negligent and do not properly follow the rules of the road, they put everyone else in danger. Those who are injured and the families of those who are killed in accidents they cause may want to know if they can seek compensation.
