Car accidents: Long Island accident leaves 1 dead, 3 injured

Many drivers in New York and elsewhere around the country are in their vehicles after midnight. Some may be heading home after a late evening out with friends, while others may be traveling to or from work. There are also employees in their vehicles that are required to drive at those times as part of their jobs. Though there may be fewer vehicles on the roads during those hours, car accidents still happen. Recently, a crash occurred on Long Island that claimed the life of one man and injured three others.

Police officers report that a 31-year-old man was driving his pickup truck near an intersection in Happauage.  A 30-year-old man driving his car near the intersection crashed into the pickup truck. The impact caused both vehicles to strike another car that was approaching from the opposite direction. The driver of the pickup truck was killed in the accident.

A passenger in the pickup truck and the driver of that hit the truck both suffered serious injuries. Minor injuries were reported for the driver of the third vehicle. Debris was strewn across the road where the collision occurred.

The driver that caused the accident has been charged with reckless endangerment and unlicensed driving. He also faces charges of marijuana possession and other crimes. Police indicate that he will be formerly arraigned when his medical condition improves.

Families that have lost loved ones in violent car accidents due to someone's negligence may choose to pursue wrongful death litigation. While a favorable decision in a lawsuit will not bring a loved one back, compensation can help survivors with unexpected funeral costs and other monetary damages. A New York personal injury attorney can assist families during their loss with the complexities of the legal process and work toward obtaining a successful outcome in a case.
