Car accident kills 2 near Rochester

| Jan 26, 2015 | Uncategorized

On behalf of Kammholz Law PLLC posted in Car Accidents on Thursday, December 26, 2013.

This time of year, road conditions can change at a moment’s notice. Rain can become freezing rain, which can become ice and snow all within a very short amount of time. A change of only a couple of degrees can make all the difference to New York roadways. Drivers need to constantly keep the severity of winter driving in mind when they are traveling this winter. Without the right care, a serious accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Recently, near Rochester a fatal car accident occurred as a result of a driver’s negligent behavior during difficult driving conditions. According to reports, a driver was fleeing police following a suspected shoplifting incident at a local store. While police officers ultimately decided not to pursue the driver in the dangerous snowy and icy conditions, the driver continued to speed off on Dewey Avenue. Witnesses say the driver was driving recklessly and on the wrong side of the street before causing a serious car accident. The car apparently, hit another car near the intersection of Albermarle Street and Dewey Avenue at around 10:00 p.m. As a result of the accident, a two-and-a-half year old boy in the other car was severely injured. He was taken to a local hospital but later died. A 35-year-old woman — and passenger in the car that was fleeing police — was also killed in the accident. The driver of the fleeing car was severely injured and taken to a local hospital. Fatal car accidents are devastating to the victims’ families. Not only do these families have to deal with the emotional difficulties of losing a loved one — especially so close to the holidays — they also often have severe financial repercussions. Depending on the circumstances in the case, car accident victims’ families may have medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs and other unexpected expenses as a result of the fatal car accident. In these cases, a wrongful death suit may help pay for these expenses. While a lawsuit cannot taken the emotional pain away, it can help families avoid financial ruin.
