It may take New York police some time to sort through the details of a recent car accident in Harlem. One passenger was killed and several other people injured in the two vehicle fatal accident. In the immediate aftermath of the crash, one driver was detained and charged with operating a motor vehicle without a license as well as aggravated unlicensed operation. Those criminal charges, however, do not fully explain exactly what occurred.
It is never easy to love a love one to declining health. However, when the loss appears to be directly related to the negligence of medical personnel, it may sting even more because a high standard of care is expected when someone is being treated for a medical condition. Recently, a New York woman filed a wrongful death suit against St. Joseph Hospital after her husband died during his stay there.
A tragic wrongful death case is now being heard in a New York courtroom. The case revolves around two young friends who were left alone inside of a home approximately two years ago. Initially the two were playing video games, but they later found a handgun in a bedroom. They begin to load and unload the gun, and it eventually fired, striking one of the children in the head and killing him. Criminal charges resulted, as well as a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the victim's parents.
Perhaps the most frightening aspect of a car crash is the sudden change in circumstances. We have come to accept automotive travel as an integral part of our daily lives, and most of us have little fear or apprehension about getting into or driving a car or truck. This comfort, however, is destroyed in the face of screeching tires, breaking glass and bending metal. A recent fatal accident in upstate New York serves as a reminder of the ever-present hazards of road travel.
Not all fatal accidents are the result of a criminal act. However, even if the case is not initially considered to be one that will support criminal charges, civil citations may still be forthcoming if New York police believe that the driver in the fatal accident violated the Vehicle and Traffic Law of our state. A woman has been issued such tickets in a traffic accident that involved the death of a 14-year-old boy.
When there are few apparent outside contributing factors, it can be difficult for individuals to come to terms with how pedestrians could be struck by a vehicle while they are walking alongside the road in the middle of the day. After a fatal accident results, New York police may have a substantial number of investigative hurdles to cross before they reach a final conclusion. Police are continuing to investigate an accident that took the life of one man and has sent a woman to the hospital with critical injuries that resulted from them being struck by a car as they walked along a road.
Single vehicle accidents are some of the most common motor vehicle accidents across the country. In many cases, these accidents occur late at night, with few witnesses. In a recent fatal accident in upstate New York, the driver of a car and her passenger were killed, and police did not initially disclose many details surrounding the accident's cause.
There are few things more tragic then a car accident taking the life of a young individual. However, in some cases, a fatal accident can magnify in its effect when there is more than one individual riding in the vehicle. In a recent case, a single vehicle accident caused the death of four New York teenagers. The driver, who has been identified as being 17 years old, was hospitalized after his vehicle struck a tree in the early morning hours.
Fleeing the scene of a car accident involving potential injuries is illegal in every state across the country. Leaving the scene of a fatal accident is even more serious and can lead to felony criminal charges being filed against the driver of the vehicle. In a recent upstate New York accident, a man has been accused of leaving the scene of an accident that has killed one man and injured another.
