Man Dies In Overnight Accident On Beach Road In Sarasota, Passenger Critically Injured

Siesta Key Sarasota, FL - FHP has reported a single-vehicle accident in the early hours of June 7, 2023, that has left one young man dead and another fighting for his life at a local hospital. The accident occurred on Beach Road, west of Avenida Del Mare, around 2:07 AM.

The accident began as a sedan, driven by a 23-year-old man from Sarasota, was reported traveling east, possibly at a high speed on Beach Road when the driver lost control near a curve. In the resulting accident, the vehicle ran off the road, colliding with a utility pole and a tree before overturning.

The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time, was ejected from the car during the collision and was fatally injured. First responders pronounced the man deceased at the scene of the crash.

The passenger, another 23-year-old man from Sarasota was critically injured in the crash. He was transported to a local hospital, where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.

While the Florida Highway Patrol continues to investigate the accident, initial assessments point towards excessive speed as a possible contributing factor. Investigators also highlighted the fact that the driver was not wearing his seatbelt, emphasizing the importance of this basic safety measure.

The identities of both individuals involved are being withheld until family members can be notified.

As the investigation continues, the police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward. They hope that additional information can help to provide a fuller understanding of the tragic event.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
