Car accidents: Crash claims lives of 2 young victims, injures 2

Parents often take their children out for walks in strollers in New York and elsewhere around the nation. Spending time with their families and enjoying the outdoors are pleasant activities for all involved. Certainly, car accidents were not on the minds of those out walking one recent afternoon in Brooklyn. However, a horrific event occurred when a car struck two women and their children.

Police report that a 34-year-old woman was walking with her friend, the mother of a 1-year-old boy. The woman was carrying her 4-year-old daughter and pushing the friend's baby boy in a stroller when a car hit them all. According to witnesses, a 44-year-old woman had slowed somewhat at the intersection where the four people were crossing, but sped up as she approached them, striking them with her vehicle.

Documents show that the woman and her friend were both transported to a nearby hospital. The woman initially was reported to be in critical condition; however, she is now stable. The friend was said to be in serious but stable condition. Both children were killed in the accident.

The drive went on to hit a parked vehicle after crossing into an oncoming lane and was taken into custody. Law enforcement personnel are still trying to determine the cause of the crash in their investigation. The driver was being evaluated at a hospital to verify if she had a medical episode of some sort or was driving under the influence.

No one can ease the suffering of both the mothers as they grieve the loss of their children. However, when t is determined that drivers involved in car accidents were acting in a negligent behavior, the survivors may wish to pursue wrongful death or personal injury litigation. A New York personal injury lawyer can help families with the legal procedures and work toward achieving a favorable outcome in the process.
