Car accidents: 1 dead, 2 injured following Ulster County crash

Many New York residents and others around the nation love sports cars and enjoy driving them at high rates of speed when possible. However, most small-town roads are not designed for high-speed driving. Car accidents are nearly inevitable when a vehicle traveling so fast loses control. A recent crash in Ulster County claimed the life of one driver and injured two others.

Police officers in the town of Lloyd were contacted about a suspicious driver one evening. The police located the sports car in question and attempted to stop the driver. However, the driver fled from the officers, traveling on a highway. Additional law enforcement personnel from the New York State Police joined local officers in the chase.

During the pursuit, the sports car struck another vehicle, then crossed into oncoming traffic. The sports car crashed head on into a pickup truck. At that point, another vehicle slammed into the back of the sports car. Debris from the crash spread across several lanes of the highway.

The 39-year-old driver of the pickup truck that was involved in the head-on collision died at the scene. Her passenger was transported to a local hospital and was reported to be in stable condition. The sports car driver, a 29-year-old man, was also hospitalized and faces pending criminal charges.

When deaths occur in car accidents that were the result of another driver's negligent actions, surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A New York personal injury lawyer can help families evaluate their situation and plan how best to proceed. A successful outcome in a lawsuit can provide survivors with compensation to help offset funeral costs and provide an award for pain and suffering for their loss.
