Post-accident signs that your car should be checked out | Tampa Bay Times
41 on April 17, 2014, when Macner, who has a right above-the-knee amputation, accidentally pressed the gas instead of the brake. His amputation was the result of what has been described as health complications after his military service ended. The metal platforms used to transform a cars pedals for amputees are actually quite easy to confuse and one can see how the accident occurred. Macner was taken to the hospital with a broken collarbone and lacerations, but Nina, terrified, climbed out the passenger side window and ran away. Over Easter weekend, the call went out for dog lovers nationwide to keep an eye out for the sweet-faced shepherd mix. Nina has a microchip, making it possible to positively identify her, but her fear after the accident most likely kept her away from people. Not just dozens but hundreds, even thousands, of print and television media pieces spread like wildfire, and the hunt for Nina was on. Luke Macner lost his cell phone in the crash and his car was totaled, but the loss did not stop there. He also suffered damage to his prosthetic leg, wheelchair, and, of course, he lost his new best friend. Nina was meant to serve as his new wheelchair service dog, and Macner tearfully told news crews Im lost without [her]. And so it was cause for celebration when an HSTB representative informed this author that Nina appears to have been found. Apparently a woman found a dog fitting her description just one half-mile from the crash site on Saturday night, April 19, 2014.

Early Sunday morning police tried to pull over the vehicle, which had been reported stolen. The driver of the vehicle, 17-year-old Charles Miller, took off, though, at a high rate of speed. The officers attempted to follow the vehicle, but lost sight after the car stirred up a high amount of dust and debris. Police continued to follow the dust trail to the I-75 service drive, where officers saw the vehicle had turned upside down and was crashed against a median wall near Campbell. Charles had lost control of the vehicle. Police went down the embankment onto the freeway and called for EMS. Charles and his two friends, 14-year-old Cynthia Zaraharas and 16-year-old Suhali Alvarez, died from injuries sustained in the crash. Charles’ family is hoping to raise funds to help cover his funeral expenses. You can make a donation to the family here .

Not because you did anything wrong. But more likely because someone else was not paying attention, was talking or texting on the cell phone, or just being negligent in their driving. Below you will find some helpful tips on how to make the process after the accident as painless as possible. THINGS TO DO Cops: Woman hit in head with rock You should contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the accident. Make sure you write down the claim number they provide, as this will save you lots of time the next time you need to speak to anyone regarding the accident. Take some time and read your insurance policy and understand it. Bring the policy or at least the insurance card with you to any subsequent doctors appointment, as well as to any visit to any attorney. Immediately after the accident, take extensive notes as to how the accident occurred, who was in the vehicles, the directions of travel, as well as anything that may have caused the accident (i.e., someone ran the light). Also take pictures at the scene of the intersection or the location of the vehicles, as well as any property damage. Additionally, note the name and address of any people who stop and say they witnessed the accident. These people may leave before the police arrive, but you can always get their testimony later to help with resolving your claim.

Eye witness Bianca Jayne-Carr said on Twitter: “Woke up to yelling this morning after a car crashed into Emsworth Sailing Club. Big explosion and the place is in flames.” Around 35 firefighters tackled the blaze and a man was rescued from the car and taken to hospital with minor injuries. Police say the 82-year-old driver has since been arrested on suspicion of arson and reportedly crashed into the building at 70mph. A Hampshire Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said earlier: “We were called to Emsworth Sailing Club after a Land Rover crashed into the building. A fire spread from the car onto the roof of the club and we have teams tackling the fire.” “We have fire crews from Emsworth, Havant, Hayling Island, the Special Equipment Unit from Cosham, and teams from Horndean. We also have also got a search and rescue team on stand-by to search the building once the fire is out.”

Even if original damage is repaired and covered by insurance, problems discovered relatively soon after the accident may be covered as supplemental repairs without the need to pay an additional deductible, as long as they can be directly connected to the original incident. So don’t wait, as mechanics say that the more time that lapses after an accident, the harder it is to connect a repair to it. Here are some post-accident signs that your car should be checked out by a reliable mechanic: Battery failure: An accident can jar the battery, shaking up battery sediment and causing lead plates in the cell to short out or break. The “check engine” light: It’s not unusual for the light to come on because of problems with emissions components. Have a trusted mechanic check out the car. Leaks: An accident may cause a nicked hose or tiny crack, letting radiator fluid, oil, power steering fluid or other liquids escape. Misalignment: Some accidents can throw cars out of alignment, leading to excessive wear on tires. Finding a mechanic If you don’t already have a trusted mechanic, consider these tips for finding one: Get recommendations from friends, family and neighbors, as well as consumer reviews on a trusted online source.
