Tiny Baby Loses Family In Fatal Car Crash

Tiny baby Gabriel, just two days old, was the sole survivor from his family of four that was involved in a two vehicle car crash on February 29, 2012.

Connect reported on February 29, 2012 that 19 year old Emily Frake caused the accident when she crossed the center lane on Missouri Highway 52 and drove head-on into the vehicle carrying the Wilcox family of four.  Reports are that despite the fact that all occupants were wearing seat belts, Marty Wilcox (36), Elisa Wilcox (27), and Marty Wilcox, Jr. (3), lost their lives in the car crash.  Emily Frake suffered serious injuries and was flown to an area hospital for neurological treatment.  There is no word yet as to why Ms. Frake crossed the center line.  You may read the article here.

In tragic automobile accidents such as this one, it is crucial that an experienced auto accident attorney is hired to help protect the rights and interests of the surviving family members.  The law offices of Hoffman and Gelfman have successfully protected the rights of many personal injury victims who have been involved in car accidents.  It is our goal to provide the best legal services as we recognize the struggles that families face after an auto accident occurs.  During times such as this, our office can provide protection from the negligent acts of another person.
