Local Teen Dies in Crash Near Back Beach and Alf Coleman Dr.

Wednesday night brother and sister, Isaiah and Katurah Wooden, were walking near Back Beach and Alf Coleman Road. Suddenly, a truck driving nearby hit the teens as they walked. Sadly, Katurah Wooden was killed as a result of the crash and her brother Isaiah was left with serious injuries.

Bay County roads can be extremely dangerous for pedestrians. Any time, tragedy can strike. No family is ever ready for something like this to occur, our professionally trained staff is however. Quick action in a case like this can preserve critical evidence.

The #TeamPY #GoTeam consists of several private investigators and retired law enforcement investigators. Our #GoTeam professionals know what crucial evidence must be preserved to ensure your rights are adequately protected.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Wooden family.

Bowling for Kids Sake

#TeamPY took part in Bowl for Kids’ Sake last month. Bowl for Kids Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida’s largest annual fundraising campaign and #TeamPY had two teams at the event! Thank you to all who made it out to this great event. No matter what team you bowled on that day, we were all on the same team in the end!

419,000 vehicles to be recalled by Kia for defective parts

Florida residents rely on their vehicles to be in good working order and expect them to be safe. When a manufacturer releases vehicles for sale that have defective parts, those vehicles could become involved in serious or deadly accidents. Numerous recalls have been issued by automakers of late, and Kia is now joining them.

Kia recently announced the recall of approximately 419,000 Sorentos manufactured between 2011 and 2013, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall is to correct a safety violation in which a Sorento’s transmission can slip out of park and roll away if the driver’s foot is not on the brake. So far, three injuries have occurred because of this defect.

The company says that if the gear shift lever is “pushed too hard,” a crack can develop in part of the shift mechanism. Kia began looking into the issue after the attorney of a family who was injured due to this defect informed the company of the problem. Around 54 other warranty claims were discovered for the same issue. The company will not begin sending out recall notices to owners until Nov. 24.

During that time, the potential for serious injury as a result of the defective part or parts remains — especially if no one is behind the wheel of the vehicle at the time. Depending on how far the vehicle travels, it could pick up enough speed to cause significant damage. Anyone seriously injured — or the family of someone who is killed — by one of these defective vehicles retains the right to file a product liability claim against the automaker. If it is proved that the defective part was the cause of the accident, a Florida court may award damages.
