Yet Another Wrong-Way Driving Tragedy

Car CrashThere is a lot that can be done to prevent the rash of car accidents in Miami. However, it is always good to have proper legal representation. Consider a recent article for NBC Miami titled “Wrong-Way Driver Killed on Turnpike May Have Crashed on Purpose.”

The author of the article writes, “A driver headed the wrong way who was killed after slamming into a truck on the Turnpike in Broward County early Monday morning may have crashed on purpose, authorities said. The crash happened just before 12:30 a.m. at Griffin Road. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the 26-year-old male driver was headed the wrong way on the southbound Turnpike in a Hyundai when he slammed into an 18-wheeler and flipped upside down. The wrong-way driver, later identified as Tzvi Ference, was killed, while two passengers inside the 18-wheeler were not injured. Ference had recently posted on Facebook about battling depression and had even posted about the exact scenario in which he died. ‘I started driving down 195 from Miami Beach then headed north on 95 ready and determined to get onto the Florida Turnpike and drive the wrong way against traffic and crash my car head on into a truck and kill myself,’ he posted Friday. Ference’s family declined to speak about his death Monday. Miami Beach Police released a report from Saturday where Ference was accused of harassing people at Temple Emanu-El on Washington Avenue, where he was a member for a year. Police said he was given a trespass warning. A rabbi at the temple said Ference was allowed to stay at the temple and added that family and friends had tried to help him with his mental illness for years.”
