New York accident leaves 1 dead and 1 injured

One person was killed and another one injured in Hauppauge on June 19 in a car accident. Suffolk Police report that the accident took place on the Long Island Expressway east of Exit 55 at about 6:10 p.m.

The incident occurred when a 2006 Chevrolet Impala, headed west on the LIE and driven by a 56-year-old Coram man, collided with a 2006 Mini Cooper, driven by a 20-year-old man from College Point, Queens. The Chevrolet then slid off the road into a wooded area and collided with multiple trees.

The driver of the Chevrolet was declared dead at the scene of the accident. The other driver was injured, but his injuries were not life-threatening. However, he was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore for treatment. The fatal accident resulted in the closure of a portion of the westbound lanes of LIE for several hours.

Police did not release details about what might have caused the crash, but motor vehicle accidents such as this one are often caused by speeding, distracted or drowsy driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or making a driver error. In some cases, weather and road conditions might also play a role in an accident.

Once a police investigation determines the liable driver, the victim might wish to file a personal injury claim. To do this, they might enlist the assistance of a lawyer to negotiate with the liable driver’s insurance company and represent the victim in court if it becomes necessary. A lawyer may also explain the local laws and procedures for seeking compensation for the losses incurred during a fatal accident.
