Driver negligence was to blame in both of the accidents that landed a South Florida man in the hospital this week. The man sustained an extremely serious personal injury after he was struck by a third vehicle, following a two-car accident on I-95. In the initial accident, 49-year-old Gerald Jules was rear-ended by a car. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the two vehicles involved in the collision were stopped on the road, and Jules was standing near the car that had rear-ended him when a third car was unable to stop before hitting Jules and causing the car from the first accident to be pushed underneath Jules’ van. The Highway Patrol indicated that the driver who caused the first collision was not using due care, and the driver who caused injury to Jules was guilty of careless driving.
The series of accidents that resulted in Gerald Jules being rushed to a South Florida hospital with a personal injury deemed critical resulted from negligence on the part of two other drivers.
