Reasons for Coral Springs, Florida, Teenagers’ Car Drowning still a Mystery

The Coral Springs Police Department announced that their investigation into the reason why three teens died in a car crash will takes months.

The three teens drowned early Sunday morning when they were trapped in a car that plunged into a canal. A fourth person in the car survived.

Initial police reports indiciated that the car’s driver may have been trying to flee from a minor fender, but police cautioned that they still are are not certain of this. At the time of the accident, the teens were at their high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High’s, homecoming.

Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, where the teens were students, held several events in honor of their fellow students who died.

Over the coming months, the Coral Springs Police Department will examine the available evidence to try to determine what caused the car to plunge in the canal. They will also examine what the teens were doing earlier that evening, including looking into any parties that they may have attended.

Burning Death Car Accident in Hollywood, Florida, Investigated

The Florida Highway Patrol is attempting to identify the remains of an SUV driver killed yesterday in a fiery three-vehicle crash on Interstate 95.

Six other people were also involved in the crash, which occurred on I-95 southbound near the Pembroke Road exit in Hollywood, Florida.

Troopers says a 2000 Cadillac Escalade sideswiped two vehicles, sped off and hit a Ford Taurus moments later. The Escalade then struck a 1998 Ford Expedition stopped in the emergency lanes, and both vehicles burst into flames.

The Expedition’s driver died at the scene. The remains of the driver were so charred that dental records may be needed to identify the person.

The injured persons were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood in serious to critical condition Tuesday, officials said.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating whether alcohol or speeding played a part in the crash, which stopped traffic on the highway for five hours.

Under Florida law, a driver who causes an accident while operating his car under the influence of alcohol or a narcotic may be exposed to punitive damages. Punitive damages are additional damages imposed on a defendant for conduct that is either willful or grossly negligent, such as <ahref=”http: www.cdc.gov=”” motorvehiclesafety=”” impaired_driving=”” 3d.html”=””>DUI.

Dissolution pending on Fort Lauderdale Law Firm, Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler

Clients and investors with the Fort Lauderdale law firm of Rothstein Rosenfeldt and Adler are worried because of allegations that the firm’s major law partner, Scott Rothstein, stole hundreds of millions of dollars from his firm, according to various news publications.

The Miami Herald reports that federal investigators are looking into allegations that Scott Rothstein scammed investors by selling them “fabricated” civil settlements and also that Rothstein stole from his law firm’s financial operations and from their clients’ trust accounts.

Typically, clients with significant personal injury cases will acquire substantial sums of money through either a settlement or trial and these funds are required to be deposited into a law firm’s trust account before being disbursed to the client.

Because the alleged theft by Rothstein has virtually depleted the financial resources of his law firm, Stuart Rosenfeldt, a partner with the firm, has filed a lawsuit requesting a Broward County Circuit Court judge to dissolve the law firm. This legal request for dissolution of the firm should have have the ultimate impact of closing down Rothstein, Rosenfeldt and Adler.

A major concern for the Broward County judge deciding the firm’s request to dissolve itself will be the continued representation of the firm’s clients. In the event Rothstein, Rosenfeld and Adler, is dissolved, the firm’s clients who have ongoing legal matters such as personal injury lawsuits as well as other cases will still require attorneys to represent their interests.

* Since the date this article was authored, the case in Broward County Circuit Court has been transferred to the Federal Bankruptcy Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
