Palm Harbor Car Accident Puts Two in Hospital

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A driver wanting to turn left puts Fabian Calvo in the hospital with serious injuries from a car accident yesterday in Palm Harbor.

Curt L. Ekberg was northbound on County Road 611 when he attempted a left turn onto Tarpon Lake Boulevard. Fabian Calvo was driving southbound on County Road 611 when Ekberg turned in front of him causing the car accident.

According to reports, Mr. Ekberg was listed in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center and Fabian Calvo was in serious condition at Mease Countryside.

This accident should be a reminder of how many automobile accidents occur when someone is turning. Turing left in front of oncoming traffic is a dangerous thing. You must be patient and cautious. If you think you cannot make it, don’t try it. A few extra minutes of waiting is far better than days, months, years of recovering from a car accident.

  1. Traffic accident claims for compensation are the most common category of personal injury claim in Ireland today. traffic accident claims can originate from injuries sustained due to a poorly maintained road surface or where a vehicle has malfunctioned – even when there is no other vehicle involved – and although the reasons for traffic accident claims are numerous, but they have one thing in common – an injury has been sustained through somebody else´s contributory negligence.

    The article does not place blame on anyone. It simply states how the car accident occurred and reminds drivers to be safe while making left turns. I, too, wish the best for all involved.

    This accident is still under investigation. Your post is full of fallacies look up: Fallacy of the single cause, Hasty generalization, Appeal to consequences. I agree, when making a left hand turn we all need to be extra cautious. However, before claiming fault, you should wait untill the investigation is over. I hope for the best for the individuals involved.
