Ft Lauderdale Automobile Drowning Accident

Three Lauderhill youths drowned when the car they were passengers in crashed and became submerged in a pond on the grounds of the Inverrary Country Club on January 23, 2016. 22-year-old Shaquille Barrow-Legrand, 22, 14-year-old Tyrese Legrand, and 25-year-old Nathaniel Morgan, of Pompano drowned when trapped in the car driven by 24-year old DeShawn Prince who was able to free himself and swim to shore.

The family of the youths learned of the accident after text messages requesting that Shaquille and Tyrese come home went unanswered. The parents had just finished a night out bowling and were looking to call their children home. After failing to reach them by text message, concerned relatives called and went to local hospitals to look for them finding that Tyrese had been taken to Broward Health Medical Center and Shaquille to Florida Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Shaquille was pronounced dead on Sunday and Tyrese a day later.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and are concerned with what caused the vehicle to go off the road in the first place. Also disturbing is why no attempt was made by the driver who escaped to save the kids who were trapped in the car. The driver after recklessly and negligently crashing the car into the pond merely swam to shore to save himself.

If you have had loved ones who have been killed in a single car crash and were passengers in the vehicle, you may be able to sue the insurance company of the owner of the car. The Ft. Lauderdale car accident law firm of Joseph Maus is experienced and knowledgeable in such matters and can help you to recover expenses and future wages.
