Sarasota Man Dies In Crash On Bee Ridge Road and Honore Ave. in Sarasota

Sarasota County - Florida Highway has reported that a fatal accident occurred at the intersection of Bee Ridge Road (State Road 758) and Honore Avenue in Sarasota County on November 12, 2023, at approximately 7:57 AM Early Sunday morning.

According to the FHP, a 53-year-old woman from Sarasota was driving a Dodge pickup truck westbound on Bee Ridge Road in the left travel lane. Simultaneously, a 40-year-old woman from Port Charlotte was driving a sport utility vehicle eastbound on Bee Ridge Road in the right travel lane. In a tragic turn of events, the pickup truck veered into the center median and continued in a southwesterly direction, entering the eastbound travel lanes of Bee Ridge Road.

The pickup truck then collided with the left side of the sport utility vehicle. The impact was primarily on the front left of the pickup truck. Tragically, the 53-year-old driver of the pickup truck was pronounced deceased at the scene by Sarasota County Emergency Medical Services. Preliminary investigations suggest that the driver of the pickup truck may have suffered a medical event prior to the crash.

The 40-year-old woman who was the driver of the sport utility vehicle sustained minor injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol Traffic Homicide Unit is actively investigating this fatal traffic crash to determine the precise cause and circumstances.

This incident serves as a somber reminder of the unpredictability of road travel and the importance of road safety. The FHP continues to investigate and will provide updates as more information becomes available.

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.
