New York crash kills teenager, injures 4 others

It was reported that a New York teenager was killed in a car accident on March 6 on Northern State Parkway at approximately 11:06 p.m. The crash left four others with injuries.

Authorities stated that two vehicles, a Chevrolet Malibu and a BMW, were travelling on the parkway when they collided. The Chevrolet ultimately left the road and crashed through the median. The vehicle came to a rest on its top in the westbound lanes of the parkway. The collision caused the BMW to leave the road and collide with a tree. Authorities stated that both of the vehicles were heading east at a high rate of speed when the collision occurred, though it was not believed that drugs and alcohol were involved.

The driver of the BMW, a 17-year-old male, died at the scene of the incident. Two passengers from the BMW were taken to nearby hospitals after suffering serious injuries. The two occupants in the Chevrolet suffered injuries that were considered to be minor, though they were still transported to a hospital for treatment. When the report was released, authorities had not determined who was responsible for causing the crash as the investigation was still taking place.

Anyone who was injured in an auto accident that was caused by another driver may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against that driver. Through this claim, the injured person may recover the cost of any damages that were sustained. An attorney may help by using hospital bills and other evidence to estimate the total cost of damages that the injured person sustained. This estimate may be used to negotiate a settlement that covers the cost of the damages.
