The Daytona Beach News Journal is reporting that Carl Lee Pierce, of Deltona was killed in a motorcycle crash in the early morning hours of Feburary 8, 2018.
The police reported that it appeared both drivers had a green light and Dustin Lee Lindsey of Lake Mary turned his F-150 left from Dirkson Road to enter the freeway on ramp while Carl Lee Pierce was driving in the opposite direction on Dirkson. The police also reported that it appeared neither driver was impaired and speed was not a factor.
Sometimes accidents happen. This could simply be a case of violation of right of way.
But before anyone involved in an accident like this accepts a settlement from an insurance company it is important to retain a local accident and injury lawyer to make sure no stone is left unturned in investigating the case for potential causes of the crash.
For example, an investigation could reveal a case of distracted driving. This type of finding dramatically impacts a case.
