Two Hurt After Crash With Charlotte County Sheriff's Cruiser

PORT CHARLOTTE - Florida Highway Patrol reported that two people were injured after a crash crash in Port Charlotte involving a marked patrol car from the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office early Saturday morning.

The car accident happened as a 37-year-old woman from Miramar Florida was driving a Mitsubishi sport utility vehicle in the right lane of southbound US 41 approaching the intersection with Conway Boulevard.

Nearby the Mitsubishi SUV in the center lane and a little ahead, a marked Charlotte County Sheriff's Office patrol car driven by a 57-year-old man from Punta Gorda was also driving south approaching the intersection with Conway Boulevard.

At 1:40:00 AM the patrol car attempted to make a right turn from the center lane of US 41 across the right lane and onto Conway Boulevard.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office patrol car drove directly into the path of the Mitsubishi SUV, and the front of the SUV crashed into the right side of the patrol car.

The patrol car came to a stop on Conway Boulevard facing west and straddling the centerline.

The SUV came to a stop at the intersection of Conway Blvd., and US 41 facing south.

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.
