Car accident takes the life of 82-year-old man

People often assume that younger drivers are better than older drivers. Though there might be some statistical evidence for that claim, it isn’t always true. Car crashes can be caused by anyone of any age. One recent car accident here in New York shows just how true that idea is after an 82-year-old man died in a crash that may have been caused by a 22-year-old woman.

The crash happened on a recent weekend morning. State police say that the woman was driving southbound on a local road. They say that she lost control of her vehicle and hit a car traveling in the opposite direction, driven by the older man. They were both rushed to nearby hospitals, but the man did not survive his injuries.

Police haven’t publicly speculated about the precise cause of this collision. They have noted that the road was covered in snow at the time, but say that they are still conducting their investigation in order to determine exactly what happened. At this time, they have not announced any intention to file criminal charges in connection with the crash.

No matter what the outcome of the police investigation may be, the family of the man who died may decide to file a wrongful death claim against the woman or anyone else deemed responsible for the car accident. Those here in New York in a similar situation may want to consult a personal injury attorney in order to determine the best course of action in the pursuit of justice. It is the right of a deceased victim’s surviving family to seek full financial accountability from those believed responsible.
