phillips, hunt, walker & hanna UPDATE: Client in serious wreck loses leg and loses cats, but one cat has been found
Below is a series of news stories about our Jacksonville, Florida based client who was rear-ended on the New Jersey Turnpike in a violent collision while they were on vacation. As you will see in the first story, the driver was ejected in a massive roll-over. Evidence shows the client was rear-ended by a Ford F-150 which was driving at 94 MPH prior to impact, with a constant throttle and no evidence of braking. This sent them on a massive roll-over accident. The driver was in the hospital for quite some time and ultimately lost his leg and sustained many other serious injuries. The passenger has serious injuries as well. They also lost their precious cats, which were in a cat carrier in their car. It added an additional level of hurt, as Pancho and Puky were members of the family.
Here is the initial story from Philadelphia news, including overhead coverage of the wreck from the news helicopter:
Here is an update of the driver’s progress as he finally was able to get back home to Jacksonville and is on the road to recovery:
A multi-state effort was made to find their cats. Read more about it here. One cat, Pancho, was FOUND! Our office flew the good Samaritan to Jacksonville to deliver Pancho to our clients. Thank you to all who helped. Update here:
We work hard to make clients WHOLE, whether that means making sure they are getting into the right doctors, advising about a prosthetic and rehabilitation or doing whatever we can to assist reuniting clients with their feline family. It takes strangers helping sometimes and we can’t thank enough everyone who has been looking.
