The operator of a White Cadillac El Dorado Sedan was transported to the hospital after he crashed into a used car dealership lot and wrecked numerous at least seven vehicles at America Auto Wholesale located at 9815 NW 27TH Avenue. The accident took place at around 5 am on Friday July 3 near the intersection of Northwest 27th Avenue and 98th Street in the West Little River neighborhood. The accident occurred when the operator of the white Cadillac El Dorado flew by a stop sign and suddenly lost control of the vehicle. The Cadillac drove through a median and slammed right into some of the parked cars on the used car dealership lot. The owner of America Auto Wholesale says the driver caused extensive property damage and wrecked four sedans, two SUVs, and one pickup truck that were all parked on the lot. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Storefront Car Crashes in South Florida
When we get behind the wheel of a car, there are some risks that we know are possible but being hit by a car while sitting in a living room, having a meal at a restaurant, or while shopping at a retail store are not among the types of risks one would usually consider. You may be surprised to learn that according to research from the Storefront Safety Council, drivers crash into buildings about 60 times per day in the United States. The physical damage to a storefront business after a storefront crash can be devastating but the potential for severe injury or death to those in or around the storefront can be truly horrific. Storefront car crashes can be attributed to the negligence of drivers and can result in severe bodily injury and in many cases can result in death. Storefront car accidents are most commonly caused by operator error, pedal errors, and drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Data shows that at least 30% of yearly storefront car accidents are caused by operator error. Operator error may involve things like speeding, failure to quickly react to road conditions or other vehicles on the road or sudden changes, and most of all, distracted driving. As for pedal errors, these types of accidents occur when the operator of a car mistakenly presses on the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal. Storefront car accidents caused by pedal error are common as they account for about 30% of the storefront crashes that are reported each year. Finally, storefront accidents are often caused by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In fact, about 17% of storefront car accidents are caused by impaired drivers. Overall, storefront car accidents are caused by drivers who either drink excessively, speed excessively, or drivers who simply make mistakes when operating their vehicle with some noted exceptions. For instance, some storefront car accidents are caused by engineering defects that cause vehicles to accelerate outside of the control of the operator and other accidents are caused by drivers who have a sudden medical emergency while operating a vehicle such as a heart attack, seizure, etc.
