Fatal Tour Bus Accident in Broward County, Florida Leaves One Woman Dead

Broward County, Florida – One woman was killed Sunday in a bus accident on the road to the Langerado Music Festival just North of I-75 (Alligator Alley).

A spokesperson from the Broward County Medical Examiner’s office said that 36 year old Constance Leach of Clewiston, Florida, died from injuries she sustained in the crash.

According to Florida Highway Patrol spokesman, Sgt. Mark Wysocky, the accident occurred on Snake Road, a few miles north of Interstate 75 in Broward County when the pick up truck driven by Leach collided with a tour bus. The crash was reported in the early morning hours on Sunday.

Our Florida injury lawyers have represented many families whose loved ones were seriously injured or killed in charter bus accidents across the state of Florida. Through our investigation of many of these crashes, we have discovered that bus drivers are often hired and placed behind the wheel of these huge vehicles without adequate training or experience. Too often, tour bus drivers are pushing the limits of safe operation in order to deliver passengers to their destination earlier. Lives are lost or forever changed when negligent charter operators put profits ahead of people by hiring unqualified drivers and failing to adequately train them.

Leach, a stay at home mom, leaves behind her four children and two grandsons, according to her sister, Tammy Leach.

Miccosukee police are investigating the cause of this accident and would not release many details until their investigation is complete.

Langerado is a four-day music concert that is held in Broward County each year. This was the first time it has been held at the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation. It ended Sunday night.
