Florida Driver Injures Multiple Motorists in Bumper Car Rage
A driver in Melbourne, apparently enraged after some sort of domestic altercation, recently injured multiple other motorists by deliberately and repeatedly trying to hit another car in a game of bumper cars gone wrong. The driver sped through an intersection, hitting multiple other vehicles in the process. Three people were ejected from one of the cars that he hit, including a teenager who had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital for his injuries, according to a report from the local Fox affiliate. The driver was charged with driving with a permanently revoked license, aggravated abuse, and grand theft of a vehicle. While this may seem like one isolated incident, road rage is actually a serious problem in Florida that ends up disrupting people’s lives when they least expect it. If you have been the victim of someone else’s road rage, retaining an experienced Florida personal injury attorney like the attorneys of Schwed, Adams & McGinley is the best thing to do to make sure you are not the victim of someone else’s inability to keep their emotions in check while behind the wheel. We will ensure that you recover maximum compensation for the injuries and other damages you suffer because of that person’s road rage.
Road Rage: Unexpected and Dangerous
While this situation in Melbourne may have been unique in that most drivers will not become so mad they will try to play bumper cars with another car, it does highlight the dangers of road rage in Florida. Many times, someone behind the wheel of a car that is sharing the road with you may have simply lost control of their emotions and everyone else around that driver is in danger as a result. Although he is facing criminal charges for this incident, the driver in the Melbourne incident is not the one who will pay for the consequences of his accident; instead, it will be the victims of his emotions who suffered injuries and who will be dealing with the consequences of his inability to keep his emotions in check
