On February 23, 2011, a man was traveling with his family from Miami to Chicago just days after his wedding when the vehicle was struck by a FedEx truck. Of the seven passengers traveling in the vehicle, three were killed. These included Brianna Chacon, age 10, Tatyana Alvarez, age 11,and Victor Chacon, Jr., age 26, the groom.
The groom’s wife was in Homstead, Florida, a Miami suburb at the time of the incident.
Presently a thorough investigation is being conducted in order to determine the cause of this accident. Should it be determined to be due to the negligence of the driver of the FedEx truck, the family of the deceased may have wrongful death claims against FedEx.
My sincere condolences go out to the family members of the decedents.
