Chain Reaction Crash Sends 5 to Hospital

Chain Reaction Crash Sends 5 to Hospital

Port Richey police said a total of five people were transported to area hospitals after a horrific crash in the intersection of U.S. 19 and Ridge Road in Port Richey Thursday afternoon.

A terrible accident resulted in five people being transported to local hospitals where they were treated for injuries. Per the Port Richey police, a chain reaction caused 5 cars to become involved in the episode.

Based on the report the police filed, the accident was set into motion when a driver had a seizure while behind the wheel. The passenger riding with her attempted to control both her vehicle and the woman, but was unable to dislodge the driver’s foot from the gas pedal. The passenger was able to gain control of the steering wheel and guide the car over the median in an attempt to avoid crashing into a row of cars that was stopped and waiting for a red light. The problem was that the trip over the median caused the car to flip.

Crash Scene

“We heard the noise, the loud boom,” witness to the accident, Chris Casto said. “We saw the car had flipped it was in midair it landed on its hood, its top and it slid a couple hundred feet down the road. There was quite a bit of cars involved and to be in the air like that the car he had to be going a pretty good clip.”

While they’re appreciative for witness testimony, the police are also using red light cameras to help them piece the various details together. However since they’re confident that the entire thing was the result of a medical procedure, it’s unlikely any criminal charges will be filed.

The best thing about this accident is that no one died and that it wasn’t caused by a drunk driver, however that doesn’t mean that victims in the 5 car pile-up shouldn’t touch base with a Tampa personal injury lawyer. They should.

At first glance, this entire episode looks like it was just one of those things that couldn’t have been avoided, but it’s possible that if the Tampa personal injury lawyer digs just a little deeper, they’ll learn a thing or two that will be useful to the victims of the crash.

The attorney will try to determine if there was anything that could have been done to the road to prevent the accident from happening, the types of medications the driver who had the seizure was on, and if the driver had a history of seizures or any restrictions on her driving privileges. The attorney will also gather facts to see if all the vehicles were in good shape and if all the safety equipment worked properly to prevent additional injuries.

“Tampa personal injury attorneys work to help victims of tragic accidents recover punitive damages. If you’ve been in an accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost wages, disability, property damage, or even emotional pain and suffering,” said Tampa attorney Marc Yonker.

Multi-Car Crash Leaves 5 Dead Near Tampa

Following a fiery crash involving four vehicles in Tampa, police report that five people are dead. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash claimed the lives of three adults and two children including 9-year-old John Bernal and 10-year-old Isabell Bernall. Also in the same vehicle were three other passengers. Marianela Murillo, age 39, also died from injuries when the vehicle caught on fire minutes after the crash. The two survivors remain in the hospital. Police say that 15-year-old Luisa Louisa and 18-year-old Lina Bernal are both in critical condition.

The cause of the accident is still unknown, but police do know that Pablo Cortes Jr., age 22, caused the crash. After losing control of his vehicle, Cortes crossed the median and crashed into into multiple vehicles in a string of head-on collisions. In his car, passenger Jolie Bartolome, age 19, also died in the accident. A third vehicle was also involved in the accident and the driver suffered serious injuries.

Investigators from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department are working with Florida Highway Patrol to try to determine what caused the massive accident and resulting fire. The collision resulting in five fatalities happened at the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Coconut Palm Drive.

Witnesses reported that street racing was the potential cause for the crash. In an interview with ABC Action News, Gregory Hawkins recalled driving down MLK Boulevard and seeing two cars speed by. Moments later, he said he was pulling children out of a car that was involved in the accident. Local residents also confirmed Hawkins’ report, stating that street racing is very common in the area where the crash happened.

So far, police have not commented on whether street racing was involved. Following the crash, MLK Boulevard was completely blocked off for the night. It was around 4:30 AM when officials finally cleared the scene and reopened the road to local traffic.

“Anytime we see an accident of this magnitude that claims the lives of innocent children, it causes serious concern,” said Tampa personal injury attorney Bill Winters. “As an attorney in this area, I routinely work with victims of accidents that have suffered major, life altering injuries. It’s always more tragic when there are children involved.”

Personal injury attorneys in Tampa frequently represent victims of car accidents. If you’ve been involved in an accident that left you with serious injuries or health problems, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost wages, medical bills, or pain and suffering. Work with a local attorney to learn about your rights and find out if you are a good candidate for a personal injury lawsuit. Tampa attorneys can represent victims from a variety of collisions ranging from car or motorcycle accidents to bicycle accidents or hit-and-run crashes. If a loved one dies in a fatal crash, attorneys can sometimes help you open a case against negligent parties that were potentially involved.

Why You Should Keep At Distance From A Lamborghini Aventador

Feautured3

Recently, the driver of a Ferrari 458 had the experience that only further confirmed it is not a good idea to come close to a fire-breathing Lamborghini Aventador.

Namely, the Lamborghini Aventador is known for making fire. It was only in February 2017 that 5900 Lamborghinis were sent back to the workshop due to fire hazards. That is sufficient to always keep at a sufficient safety distance from a Lamborghini.

post3cThis car, the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Roadster, blows minds and breathes fire. Currently, it is one of the fastest vehicles in the world. The title “Superveloce” (superfast) answers many questions and gives you all the information you need to know. The Aventador costs 70,000 euros. For this priceLamborghiniwill provide you with radio, navigation, insulation, carpets, in total 50 kilos. Instead of comfort, there is a strength.

LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR SV ROADSTER: A MOST FANTASTIC CAR

Post3aLess weight, more power, more speed on the circuit. If you want to drive fast and do not ask for the price – this is the car for you. It is about feedback, ease, spontaneity.

Getting aLamborghinigets for more conversational talks than a sweet puppy in the park.

The difference between coupe and roadster? Not yet measurable. Lamborghini drove with the closed version round in 6:59 minutes. The record for road cars is at 6:52 minutes and also comes from Lamborghini. The roadster is currently timeless. It does not drive far behind because the technique is identical.

The Aventador SV Roadster is the first Superveloce-Lamborghini without a roof. So far, the sports car builders converted only closed cars to SV models, most recently the Aventador Coupé. In the roadster, four levers loosen the two roof halves (carbon, 12 kilograms). The parts snap into space under the bonnet after a complicated movement sequence.

Post3bIf you are still not convinced, you should get a Lamborghini than you might want to read our other articles as well! If you can afford it, why not! We only live once and getting a Lamborghini could make your life just so much more worth living. In addition to that, if you would like to give it a test drive, perhaps you could visit our company and take a Lamborghini for a spin.

Test it and buy it – or try some other model

Once you get behind that wheel there is no way you would want to give it back, so you will have to buy it. That is the point of no return for many people who can afford it, and those who can’t continue to dream about affording it one day anyway! So, if you want to make your dreams come true today, Lamborghini might just be the thing you were waiting for. If you cannot decide between a Lamborghini Aventador or other models, perhaps you should take them all for a spin before you decide. But in addition to Aventador, another great Lamborghini model is Spyder, and in our following articles, you will read why!

 

Would You Drive A Lamborghini In Tokyo?

Feautured2

Shinichi Morohoshi does not lack self-confidence. He does not care what other people think of it when he makes the engine of his 700 hp Lamborghini Aventador roar loud in the night city because he is too busy to having fun.

And if people should talk badly about him, it seems to just flatter him. “Love to hate me” is the motto of the Japanese, and no doubt – he likes to be a bad boy. Even as a child, he did not like being bossed around. Today the Lamborghini fan behaves as if he were the secret King of Tokyo.Post2b At least, when the millions of workers of the metropolis have fallen asleep, he gets the opportunity to take his Lamborghini for a spin. The “businessman,” as he refers to himself, fetches one of his three Lamborghini out of the garage and starts his tour on the Neonboulevards in Roppongi or Kabukicho, taking it over the colorful illuminated Rainbow Bridge or the raised highway ring, in the Japanese capital city Tokyo.

Dawn as the best time for driving Lamborghini

During the daytime the city traffic is far too strenuous, he explains. But just before dawn, as Tokyo is at rest, Morohoshi likes to do laps with one of his Lamborghini. He even embellished his Aventador with 100 000 euros worth optics package: glittering gold trims, messy flaps, and fins, two dozen LED spots for the chassis, and he admits it makes him feel like a kind: “With this kind of taste you have to spend a lot” says the Lamborghini fan and smiles.

Post2aAlthough Morohoshi had to learn for his driving license in a popular Toyota and he did not do it until his 33rd birthday. “But after 16 years and a few, well, it has finally been enough for a Lamborghini.” And what model would fit Morohoshi better than a Diablo?

Although he had to give himself and his colorful toy cars to the approximately 150 Lamborghini drivers in Tokyo only a little respect, now no one laughs about the start. On the contrary. The yellow-glowing and gold-glowing Aventador is currently its third Lamborghini. This man knows how to enjoy his life, driving fast cars in the middle of the night in a huge city such as Tokyo. In fact, the proud owner of the three Lamborghinis seems to be happier than ever, beaming with joy when he takes one of his cars for a spin.

 

Do you know the history of Lamborghini? What is in a Lamborghini car?

Feautured1

Lamborgini is the short form of the company “Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.” and is known as an Italian automobile manufacturer.

The company was founded in 1948 by Ferruccio Lamborghini and is based in Sant’Agata Bolognese, a place between Bologna and Modena. At that time tractors were made.

In 1959 the production was extended by the manufacture of burners and air-conditioning systems.

The foundations of the car

Post1aIn 1962/63 Automobili Lamborghini was founded. As a company emblem, it was decided on an image of a fighting bull. On October 5, 1879, a bullfight was held. The bull, injured by 24 heavy swords, survived and was pardoned. Since then, it has been a symbol of power and was also the star sign of Lamborghini. Later on, the company also started designing sports cars. According to rumors, this idea came from a dispute between Enzo Ferrari and Ferruccio Lamborghini. It was dissatisfied with his Ferrari and suggested a change in design. At that time Lamborghini produced only tractors. Enzo Ferrari was not enthusiastic and said that Lamborghini had only the knowledge of tractor construction. From this day, Lamborghini wanted to proveFerrari wrong.

Since 1964 sports cars have been produced in small series. The first copies of the 350 GTV (12-cylinder) surpassed the Ferrari significantly.

But it was not until 1966 that the Miura was able to take a look. It had 385 hp and could reach almost 300 km / h.

All models of Lamborghini bear the name of famous and successful Spanish fighting bull breeders.

These include the Murciélago and Gallardo. Only Countach made an exception.

The engine is installed longitudinally at Lamborghini, hence also the designation “LP” for “longitudinal posterior.”

Beginning in 1971, powerful engines are being built for offshore racing boats. In each case, two pieces per boat offer a total of 1000 hp.

Between 1986 and 1993 the LM002 was built.

Post1cTwo different segments of the same company

In 1972 Lamborghini came into economic difficulties. Tractors had to be sold to the Same Group. From 1972 onwards owners of the company frequently changed:

– Ferruccio Lamborghini 1963-1972

– Georges-Henri Rossetti & René Leimer 1972-1977

– Bankruptcy 1977-1984

– Patrick Mimran (as leader 1980-1984) 1984-1987

Chrysler 1987-1994

– Megatech 1994-1998

– Audi (Audi Group within the Volkswagen Group) since 1998

Post1bSince 1998 the company belongs to Audi AG. At present, about 715 employees are employed.

There was no success in Formula One, although between 1989 and 1993, motors were built for the Lola, Lotus, Ligier, Minardi and Larrouse teams.

Since 2004, Lamborghini has sold not only extravagant sports cars but also coffee and espresso machines.

The current model range includes two basic types. The Gallardo as an entry-level model and the Murciélago as a top model. Also, since 2005 it has also been available as a convertible. It enabled a broader customer base to be addressed.
