The Real Reason There Are More Car Accidents Along US-19
Updated: Jun 8
When it comes to car accidents, Florida has a bad reputation. In fact, our state ranks in the Top 5 for having the worst drivers in the country. And – from Denton Avenue to San Marco Drive – is the deadliest stretch of road in Florida.
The crash rate sits at 38.2 per 100,000 drivers. But why?
Surprisingly, there’s one cause that’s often overlooked: city planning. It seems that safety measures haven’t kept up with the industrialization along the 1,438-mile stretch. No wonder it’s called “Death Valley”.
Car accident victims suffer many different types of injuries, including broken ribs, arms, and legs…traumatic brain injuries…neck and spinal cord injuries…and internal bleeding.
But sometimes, the emotional and mental effects of an accident are often more life-destroying and extremely hard to treat…including post-traumatic stress disorder…chronic anxiety…depression…insomnia, and night terror…not to mention all kinds of new phobias.
