Bradenton Woman Dies After Being Struck By SUV On SR 70

MANATEE COUNTY - FHP has announced that a woman injured during a roadside crash last week has since died from her injuries.

The accident happened on the afternoon of June 21st, as an 18-year-old woman from Bradenton was driving a Sport Utility Vehicle heading east on State Road 70 approaching the intersection with Receiving.

Driving directly in front of the SUV was a sedan driven by a 60-year-old woman from Bradenton.

Traveling at a fair distance behind the 18-year-old in the SUV, was a 28-year-old woman from Palmetto, also driving a sport utility vehicle.

At 1:40:00 PM, the left front of the SUV driven by the 18-year-old woman from Bradenton crashed into the right rear of the sedan driven by the 60-year-old woman from Bradenton.

After the crash both vehicles came to a controlled stop in the right lane of eastbound State Road 70 (53rd Ave East).

After being rear-ended the 60-year-old woman from Bradenton exited her sedan and walked over to speak with the 18-year-old driver of the SUV.

At that point, the third vehicle, the SUV driven by the 28-year-old woman from Palmetto, failed to stop for the accident. The right front of the SUV collided with the rear of the stopped SUV that rear-ended the sedan also crashing into the 60-year-old  woman who was exchanging information with the other stopped driver.

The 60-year-old woman from Bradenton was critically injured as a result of the accident and transported to a local hospital.

Both the driver of the SUV who initially rear-ended the sedan and the third vehicle that struck the pedestrian suffered only minor injuries in the crash.

FHP later announce that the 60-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries and passed away on June 27th.

Troopers have stated that the accident remains under investigation.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
