Casey Anthony's father left with 'incapacitating' injuries after he lost control of his car as it rolled over multiple times
The incident report stated that George's car veered off the right shoulder of the road as he tried to swerve back onto the roadway and lost control of the vehicle.
Casey Anthony's father, George Anthony, who was a witness at her murder trial has reportedly been left with "incapacitating" injuries after being involved in a car accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the 67-year-old was driving his wife Cindy Anthony's Toyota 4Runner on an Interstate in Orlando when he lost control of the car and it flipped multiple times.
The incident report stated that George's car veered off the right shoulder of the road as he tried to swerve back onto the roadway and lost control of the vehicle. The 4Runner then flipped several times and crossed all lanes of traffic and came to a halt on the left media of the road, PEOPLE reported. The 67-year-old was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the accident and no other person was injured in the crash.
Following the accident, he was flown to a nearby hospital in serious condition as the Florida Highway report stated that his injuries are "incapacitating." The medical facility he was transported to also confirmed the news of the accident and said that George is a patient at the hospital. The staff, however, said that they could not give an update on his condition at the time. George and Cindy Anthony made headlines in 2008 when their daughter, Casey Anthony, was accused and charged with murder in the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony, a month after the child went missing.
On July 15, 2008, Casey's mother Cindy reported that her granddaughter was missing after not seeing her for 31 days and suspected that Casey had murdered Caylee. She informed the authorities that her daughter's car trunk was smelling like a dead body had been there. Caylee's body was discovered in December that year not far away from the couple's home and was found wrapped in a blanket and put inside a trash bag.
Casey was arrested and tried for first-degree murder in her daughter's death. Casey was found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child, however, she was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. With her due term served, she was released on July 17, 2011, and was met with public outrage and media trials.
The trials damaged Casey's relationship with her parents, especially her father. Casey's defense team at the time had alleged that George had molested his daughter ever since she was young. George, however, denied the allegation strongly.
