let me lay the scene out for you guys here in tampa we have a stretch of and island called davis island this is where alot of fancy doctors live and what not .. its a beatiful place ... once your comming onto the island u approach a bridge that is basically one huge hump in the road if u hit this hump at even 35 mph you will get a lil air ..

So how is this a tragedy like they said? Everyone survived. Why do they smear this guy's name all over the news too like he's a criminal? There hasn't been any official findings from an investigation that he broke the law. They don't know if they weren't there.
Sounds like a slow newsday trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. People crash cars all the time.

Another article I read about this said the girl in the back seat ended up with a lacerated liver among other injuries. The 2 guys in the front seat were ok relatively speaking. Maybe no seatbelt in the back? Either way, I hope she ends up being ok, sucks that the family was going to pick her up at the airport for Thanx. Now they had to come down and spend it at Tampa General Hospital.

Drive Safe!

It's better to do this stuff in the winter. Snowbanks = air bags and so much better than a brick wall lol

They were going very fast. You can tell from how far they skidded after hitting the stop sign and how far it went through the brick wall. These cars are made for the autobahn have to be safe. Wonder if the girl was wearing her seatbelt and even still she could be worse after a crash like that.
