Officials have arrested a man in connection to car crash in Panama City that killed four people and left several others seriously injured. The car crash occurred around midnight on Friday, when a driver failed to stop at stop sign. His vehicle struck the right side of a second vehicle that was carrying five men from Ohio.
The at-fault driver’s vehicle came to a stop only after it hit a utility pole. Both he and his passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Two of the Ohio men died in the accident, and two others passed away in the days following the crash.
The 21-year-old driver has been arrested and charged with Driving Without a License Involving Death/Injury and Negligent Manslaughter Involving Motor Vehicle.
These tragic wrongful deaths weigh heavily on the community and we can only hope that the victims’ families are able to find justice.
