Car accidents: 3 dead following Long Island wrong-way crash

All the boroughs of New York City are known for having heavy traffic during most times of the day. The sheer volume of vehicles on the roads, streets and highways often lead to frequent car accidents. Certainly, accidents are more likely when a motorist does not adhere to proper safe driving guidelines. A father and son recently lost their lives when a wrong-way driver struck their car in a Long Island accident.

The 65-year-old father from Staten Island was driving a car, accompanied by his 34-year-old son shortly after midnight. According to police reports, a 27-year-old man from Long Island veered into the wrong lane and crashed head-on into the oncoming vehicle with the father and son. Authorities stated that all three men died at the scene of the accident.

The crash caused extensive damage to both vehicles involved in the incident. Signage in the area of the crash indicated that the posted speed limit was 30 mph. Investigators are attempting to determine the cause of the accident.

It is devastating to lose loved ones in such tragic car accidents, particularly when other drivers' actions were to blame. Although the driver that caused the recent accident in Long Island passed away, a wrongful death lawsuit could still be brought against his estate. A successful outcome in a lawsuit could provide survivors a monetary amount to cover the costs of unforeseen funerals and other expenses. A New York personal injury attorney can assist families throughout the entire legal process to achieve the most favorable results possible.
