A retired former secretary of partner, Freeman Mark, was headed to her sister’s funeral when their vehicle was rear-ended at a high rate of speed by a distracted tortfeasor in Orlando, resulting in a total loss of her family’s vehicle and critically injuring her. She was hospitalized with manageable injuries, but soon was transferred to ICU where she remained for several months in a comatose state, and she eventually died. She turned age 80 while in ICU.
