Lake City is known as the “Gateway To Florida” and is located in Columbia County, Florida. With a population of about 12,000 and in a county whose population is on the rise (Columbia County has close to 68,000 inhabitants as of 2006) Lake City has become a popular tourist destination as well as a stop for those on route to Southern Florida.
Lake City got it’s moniker as the “Gateway to Florida” because it has two major highways that converge in the city. Interstate’s 10 and 75 intersect within the city limits. I-10 being one of the major east-west thoroughfare’s in the United States. It runs from Santa Monica, CA all the way to Jacksonville, Florida.
With so much tourist and commuter traffic traveling through Lake City, auto accidents are an all too common occurrence, which is why it helps to have a skilled Lake City personal injury attorney close by. Further, tractor trailer and commercial truck accidents on I-10 and I-75 often happen as well. With so many tourist autos and commercial vehicles driving at high speeds in such close proximity, it is really a wonder that there aren’t more accidents.
Truck accidents truly present the largest danger on our highways today. If you are involved in a full speed crash with a semi-truck, it is equivalent to colliding with 20 cars – all at the same time. This is very serious and can have catastrophic consequences.
