1 dead, friend charged with manslaughter following crash

On Jan. 5, New York authorities stated that a fatal car accident involving two vehicles and a parked car left one person dead. The driver who caused the accident was charged with manslaughter as a result of the accident.

The crash took place on Boston Road in Allerton at about 9 p.m. Authorities stated that the driver was legally drunk when his Camry crossed into oncoming traffic. The Camry collided with a Chrysler Town and Country minivan. The impact of the collision caused the two vehicles to collide with an empty parked car.

There were four passengers in the Camry who were pinned when the collision occurred, causing them to have to be extricated when rescue teams arrived at the scene. A 21-year-old man did not survive his injuries. The driver and the remaining three passengers were reportedly in serious to critical condition. The 47-year-old driver of a minivan was also taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that were found to be minor. The driver of the Camry was the one charged for the incident.

Even minor motor vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries or even death. If a person is seriously injured in a crash, he or she may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the driver even if he or she was a passenger in the vehicle. A personal injury attorney may assist with determining the damages for which the injured person can seek compensation. A lawyer may also assist with gathering evidence and negotiating with the driver's legal team or the insurance company. In some cases, an attorney can assist with recovering the cost of the person's medical bills, lost wages and potentially even pain and suffering.
