Speeding is one of the most common traffic offenses on the streets and highways of every state, including Florida. Any driver caught speeding is lucky to receive just a traffic citation. If the speeding has led to a car accident, then a ticket can quickly turn into a criminal charge, especially if other motorists or bystanders are injured. Consider a recent accident 100 miles north of Tampa.
In Chiefland, a pickup truck apparently speeding around 1:45 on a recent Sunday morning in a mobile home park lost control and caused a multiple-vehicle accident that injured three people, including a pedestrian. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the truck veered off the road and rear-ended a parked vehicle, which then hit three other parked vehicles.
