Wrong Way Accident on US 17-92 January 2020

News Events

Keeli Rodriguez of Haines City, Florida was injured in a head-on collision by a wrong way driver on January 6, 2020 on US Highway 17-92 as reported by The Ledger. The other driver, Tammi Hillman, did not survive.

Unfortunately, wrong way accidents happen all too often. This particular accident appears to have happened when Ms. Hillman was going the wrong direction on the highway without headlights according to the newspaper. That situation makes it difficult for a driver coming the opposite direction to notice that a car is going the wrong way.

In any event, the hope is that the injured person in such a severe accident has health insurance in addition to uninsured motorist coverage to cover medical expenses and lost income until that person can back on their feet. The injuries, including a lifetime of pain, are often permanent.
