Wow! Florida really dropped the ball on the prosecution of a man who is in the country illegally who killed four people outside of Disney World.
What happened was that the man was in his car and plowed into the back of the rental van that the family had been using. The van then rolled over, killing a mother, two of her children, and the grandmother.
The father of the children and the grandfather both survived the accident. I'm sure if liberals really caught wind of this story they'd probably tell you about how sexist that is and how it's suppressive of women.
But what makes things so much worse about the situation is that the man was basically given a slap on the wrist and told to not do it again.
He wasn't charged with murder, or manslaughter, or anything of that nature.
The punishment that he received was a ticket for careless driving...that's it.
The driver of a truck that rear-ended a minivan carrying a Whitman family near Walt Disney World in Florida, killing four people, has been cited, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The Smith family was in a rental van on Feb. 18 when they were rear-ended by a pickup truck on State Road 429 near Celebration, Florida, according to police.
“Lucas Dos Reis Laurindo was driving a 2016 Ram 3500 truck. He failed to slow as he approached the rear of a 2020 Toyota Sienna van. The front of the truck struck the rear of the van. The van overturned onto its side after the impact,” Florida Highway Patrol said.
The van rolled over, killing 5-year-old Scarlett Smith; her mother, 41-year-old Julie Smith, of Whitman; and her grandmother, 76-year-old Josephine Fay, of Weymouth.
Jaxson Smith, 11, later died of his injuries at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, according to Florida Highway Patrol officials.
