Former Hialeah Mayor Julio Martinez suffered major injuries as he was struck a car while he helped a friend change a tire on I-95. The driver of the car that struck him reportedly lost control of his vehicle and hit several cars, eventually throwing the former Mayor several feet above the pavement. Doctors are unsure at this point as to the extent of the damage to the former mayor, and but reports have him in critical condition at Jackson Memorial.
While the police report has not been made public, a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol says that the driver of the car that struck Former Mayor Martinez lost control of his Honda Accord and struck several other cars, including the Mayor’s red Mercedes. Accidents of this type are sadly very common, as replacing tires, pulling over, and being stopped on the shoulder are all very dangerous conditions with drivers on I-95 travelling at such high speeds. Serious injuries, like those suffered by Mayor Martinez, require complex litigation skills in order to make sure that he and his family are compensated for their loss and their suffering.
