Delray Beach, FL (June 19, 2021) – On Saturday evening, June 19, a multi-vehicle collision occurred at a major intersection in Delray Beach and left one man dead.
Deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said that 56-year-old Craig Stewart, of Boynton Beach, was killed in the wreck, which occurred on West Atlantic Avenue at El Clair Ranch Road. Police say that Steward was traveling as a passenger in a Honda Accord, which was westbound on West Atlantic Avenue and turning at El Clair Ranch Road. At that time, a Hyundai Elantra was traveling eastbound on Atlantic Avenue in the middle lane. Both vehicles had the right of way with a green traffic light but collided when the Honda’s driver attempted a U-turn.
All occupants of both vehicles, the two drivers and Stewart, were transported to Delray Medical Center via ambulance. Stewart was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
No charges have been filed, though the investigation continues at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Craig Stewart. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Florida
Highways and busy intersections are some of the most dangerous places on Florida roads when it comes to accidents. In fact, hundreds of thousands of car accidents happen every single year throughout the Sunshine State, with more than 400,000 car accidents reported due to the negligence of others. Out of these accidents, a large percentage involve multiple drivers and passengers, making the aftermath of the wreck all the more stressful.
These accidents happen due to a wide array of reasons such as distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. It is up to you to show that another party is at fault for your accident, which is not always an easy thing to do. Luckily, with the help of a skilled Florida injury attorney, you can move forward with a claim knowing that your rights are being protected.
The aftermath of a Florida car accident might be one of the most devastating things that you have ever endured. This is especially true if you have suffered from serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, TBIs, broken bones, paralysis, burns, and more. Even though car accidents are incredibly common in Florida, this does not mean that your claim is any less important than the claims of others. The insurance company may not work with you after a collision that is not your fault, which means that you will require extra help as you move forward.
