Elderly Man Killed by Accident with Police Vehicle By Moody Law | Personal Injury Attorneys on August 17, 2010

Orlando, Florida.  A 91-year-old man was killed when his car was struck by an Orange County police cruiser.  The man was just a matter of feet from his own home when his car was T-boned by the patrol car.  The accident happened at approximately 5:35 a.m. on Magnolia Homes Road near Calloway Drive.  The elderly man was identified as Edward Charles Soistman and was driving a 2005 Buick LaCrosse.  The deputy, who has still not been named, appeared to have suffered minor injuries as a result of the accident.  She was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center.  The elderly man died at ORMC.  The patrol car struck the Buick LaCross on the driver's side.  This accident is still under investigation.

This is a tragic loss for the family of the 91-year-old man.  We all have parents and even though we typically expect them to go before we do, we want them to live out their lives to the fullest potential.  As a result of this accident, it appears that the ability of this man to live to his fullest potential was taken from him.  At Moody Law, we have handled such cases involving the untimely death of a senior citizen.  Every life is precious and if you or a loved one has questions or concerns about achieving justice, please contact a Central Florida personal injury or wrongful death attorney with Moody Law for more information.  A Central Florida personal injury or wrongful death attorney can meet with you and give you a free consultation.  Our regular practice areas include greater Central Florida, including Lakeland, Bartow, Haines City, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Ft.
