Florida law allowed dangerous driver back on roads

Nancy Chancey, 59, was killed after she hit another car and was thrown from her vehicle. Two days later, a resident nearby found the body of 60-year-old Art Stroud in the brush near his home. Stroud was struck by the airborne car and thrown out of sight of the police who responded to the crash.

The story of the horrific crash and Chancey’s driving record seemed to universally spark the question “How was this woman still driving?”

The answer is simple.

Because state law allowed her to.
