An official press release from the Florida Highway Patrol reports that three people were injured, one critically, in a two car collision Monday afternoon.

The accident occurred on State Route 79 and South Header Canal Road in St. Lucie County.

The reporting officer says a Dodge Caravan driven by 74 year old Mary Gamba of Palm City failed to stop at a stop sign. In so doing, she hit a 2015 Ford Escape driven by Gary Fralix, 47, of Okeechobee.

The FHP is charging Gamba with running a stop sign.

Gamba is at Lawnwood Regional with serious injuries. Fralix is in critical condition. The passenger in his car, Johnnie Fralix, is also at Lawnwood with serious injuries.

We at DeBerard Injury Attorney are grieved to learn about this tragic accident. Proper care in operating a motor vehicle is everyone’s responsibility. Failure to do so in the case of a serious or fatal accident may constitute negligence and lead to a lawsuit.
