If you were traveling on U.S. 19 near Cross Bayou Boulevard in New Port Richey this morning, you were likely delayed. According to ABC Action News, northbound US 19 was closed in that area in New Port Richey due to a fatal car accident. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the fatal car accident happened at the intersection of US-19 and Cross Bayou Blvd just before 8 a.m. One person has died as a result of the crash.
This crash – and many similar ones – should remind us of how quick a loved one can be taken from us. Car accidents take too many moms, dads, brothers and friends from us every day. As a personal injury attorney, I see how car accidents impact individuals and families. I am sometimes amazed how flippant some insurance adjusters can be when talking about the impact of a car accident on a person’s life. Whether it is a fatal crash or a car accident causing soft tissue injuries, many (not all) insurance adjusters minimize the impact a crash can have on a person.
If you were stuck in that traffic on U.S. 19 and Cross Bayou Blvd this morning in New Port Richey, be thankful you got to eventually drive away. One family is mourning that their loved one didn’t get to.
Drive safely and watch out for those who don’t! Also, appreciate that a car accident can impact a person’s life in many ways we hopefully will never have to experience.
