What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Report Details the Recent Missing Boater Accident

Posted on March 30th, 2009 No Comments

A recent Florida accident that left 3 football players dead has been making national news.  The accident was responsible for the death of 2 former NFL players and a former University of South Florida football player. 

The state has released a report that details the information and findings that has been collected about the accident so far.   Some of the important information in the report is that 3 of the 4 men were drinking when the accident occurred and the emergency equipment on the boat was not adequate.  The use of the groups cell phones also did not work because the boaters were not close enough to a signal. The group also tried to use flares at one point, but were unsuccessful.

Hypothermia was a big factor in this,  causing many of the people to be unable to carry on and separate the boat.  The lone survivor spent nearly two days clinging to the boat before being found.  He was suffering from hypothermia and contusions.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident, contact the Jacksonville personal injury attorney, Donald Guthrie at 904-296-1088.
