Florida Highway Patrol Waiting for Miami Dolphins Player to Break His Silence
According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, it has been over a month since the pickup truck accident involving a vehicle registered to Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline. The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) is still waiting to hear from Hartline regarding the traffic accident. He has been traveling for part the summer but has been interviewed in several media outlets since his return. He reportedly told a journalist that his lawyer had told him not to speak publicly about the traffic issue.
The FHP is investigating who was driving the Dolphins player’s 2008 Ford pickup truck. The incident report says the truck collided with an abandoned 2002 Cadillac Escalade and had to be towed away. The accident occurred just east of Interstate 95. There were apparently no witnesses to the early morning crash.
The owner of the vehicle is expected to report a crash, but failure to do so is an infraction subject to a fine, not a criminal offense. At this point, it’s unclear who was driving the truck.
