When: The crash happened at 9:04 a.m.
Where: It occurred about a mile north of Southwest Gatlin Boulevard.
Who died?: FHP did not release the names of those involved in the crash after the passage of Marsy’s Law. Introduced in memory of a young woman murdered by her ex-boyfriend, Marsy’s Law was created to offer crime victims a slate of rights, including protecting them and their families from harassment by their attackers. Some law enforcement officials have interpreted the statute as applying to any victim, as well as to law enforcement officers being entitled to privacy and having their identity protected.
