South Florida Car Accident – Car Strikes Pedestrian

Jeffrey R. Davis

Early Friday, December 7, 2012, a pickup truck struck a 17 year old high school student, Allana Diniz. Diniz was crossing Congress Avenue at Meadows Boulevard at about 6:25 a.m. Diniz was seriously injured and transported to Delray Medical Center. The driver of the vehicle, 52 year-Ruben Solomon, was not injured. Traffic investigators reported that Diniz was crossing in the cross walk. However, it is unknown what exactly happened. It is hard to imagine that Diniz did not suffer a catastrophic injury or brain injury as a result of the accident.

Though traffic investigators said Diniz was crossing in the crosswalk, it is unknown at this time who had the right of way.

South Florida is no stranger to these car vs. pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, too frequently, drivers fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians. However, the circumstances surrounding this accident are not clear. Could this be a result of speeding? Could this be a result of improper lighting? Could this be a result of taking or texting on the phone while driving? Could this be a result Diniz failing to look before crossing? These are all questions that the family of Diniz and the driver will want answered. As of now, the Boynton Police Department has yet to issue a statement regarding the cause of this unfortunate accident.

Miami Personal Injury Lawyers Jeffrey R. Davis and Olga Porven of Jeffrey R. Davis, P.A., have handled many car accident cases – even car accidents where a car has either crashed into a pedestrian or a bicyclist. Our thoughts are with the family of Diniz and hope she survives her injuries.
