COLLIER COUNTY, FL - Cecilia Douglas and her two young daughters, Madison and Rylee, were killed after their car hit the back of a box truck driving in front of them. But an initial crash report from FHP says the weather was bad and Cecilia was not paying attention.
According to the FHP report, Douglas failed to notice a truck in front of her traveling at a slower rate of speed. She rear-ended the truck, causing her to veer off the road and into the canal. Officials also said the three were unrestrained.
Douglas and her two daughters were submerged in their car for about thirty minutes and all three died from their injuries. The report also states visibility was low because of fog. The driver of the truck was found to not have contriubuted to the accident.
