After deadly crash, driver's mother disagrees with prosecutor

A tragic crash happened in Florida in which a car got rear-ended and flipped, killing the driver. That woman was the mother of two children and she was riding with her husband. He survived the crash.

The woman who was driving the rear car got arrested. According to reports, her blood alcohol concentration was at least twice as high as the 0.08 legal limit allowed by Florida law; in short, she was allegedly intoxicated on her way home from work when she caused the crash.

However, when she went to court and cried while learning that she faced manslaughter and DUI charges, her mother disagreed with the prosecution on what had taken the other woman's life. The prosecution noted that when the car rolled, a metal pole smashed through the vehicle and impaled the woman, who later died during surgery. Despite that testimony and the DUI charges, the other driver's mother offered her own interpretation of events.

"The other person, unfortunately, was not wearing their seat belt and it's why she succumbed to her injuries," she claimed in court. "It was a freak accident."

The prosecutor quickly denied that, saying it was inappropriate to blame the deceased victim and claiming that she did have her seat belt on at the time of the crash. It is unclear why the two do not agree on something that could play such a large role in the case.

If you lose a loved one in a sudden manner, financial compensation cannot make up for that loss, but it may help you to cover medical bills, funeral costs, lost wages and the like.
