On September 22, 2015 a chain of cars were stopped in the early moring traffic on US Highway 231. As Kyle Junger, of Panama City, approached the gridlock he failed to realize that traffic was stopped. Junger’s vehicle crashed into a 2015 Dodge Pro-Van which was being driven by Leroy Rygula.
The initial crash caused Rygula’s vehicle to slam into the vehicle stopped in front of him and the chain reaction continued to multiple vehicles stopped in the traffic ahead.
Shortly after the crash flames erupted from two of the vehicles. Leroy Rygula’s vehicle was one of those that caught fire and, tragically, he was unable to escape with his life.
Within moments, emergency responders from multiple agencies flooded the scene. Police were not the only investigators on the scene that day. At the family’s request, the Perry & Young Go Team was rapidly dispatched. Our investigators worked to preserve evidence and begin their investigation from its beginning, not months later. The importance of finding a local law firm with resources such as the Go Team cannot be overstated. If you or someone you know faces such a tragedy, place your trust in the team that will fight for you! #TeamPY #GoTeam
