Car accidents: 1 dead, 3 injured after crash with drunk driver

Drinking and driving in New York or anywhere around the nation is a bad combination. Car accidents are more likely to occur when drivers are impaired due to alcohol consumption. A recent crash involving a drunk driver left one person dead and two others injured.

Police officials report that a 54-year-old was driving a Jeep in the Bronx early one morning. He crashed into the rear of another car, driven by a 31-year-old man. The car then spun and collided with another vehicle that was turning onto the road. The Jeep went on to strike two parked cars that were at a nearby apartment complex, according to officers.

The driver of the car initially struck by the Jeep passed away at the scene of the accident. His passenger was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. A woman in the car hit when the Jeep went out of control was also transported to the hospital, along with the Jeep driver. It was determined that the driver of the Jeep was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Records show that he has been charged with driving under the influence.

It is devastating when car accidents claim the lives of loved ones.  When the accidents involve the negligence of another driver, that loss is even more tragic. Family members who have experienced a loss due to a drunk driver may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A New York personal injury lawyer can help families through the process of seeking compensation for unforeseen funeral costs and other monetary damages.
