accident on Monument Road Leaves Mother and 3-Year-Old Daughter in Critical Condition

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A devastating accident on Monument Road has left a mother and her 3-year-old daughter fighting for their recovery. The incident involved a suspected drunk driver and occurred on Friday afternoon, causing severe injuries to the victims.

The driver, a 78-year-old individual, miraculously escaped without injuries but was taken into custody by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on multiple charges. The mother, Liz Cruz, spoke from her hospital bed, pleading for justice for her young daughter, Libby Ajavon.

Liz described the horrifying moments leading up to the crash. According to her account, she made a complete stop at a yield sign and checked for oncoming traffic before making a turn. However, she was blindsided by the suspected drunk driver’s vehicle, causing her car to spin out of control.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reported that the 78-year-old driver, identified as Laroy Gordon Slappey, was arrested on charges including driving under the influence and driving on the wrong lane or side.

Both Liz and Libby were rushed to the hospital for treatment. Although Libby has been released, she now requires a wheelchair due to a cast on her left leg. Liz, on the other hand, remains hospitalized, facing a long road to recovery with fractures all over her body.
