One injured and another dead in fatal three car crash

With holiday season upon us, it is no wonder that more people are seen out and about on the streets. People are rushing to complete their holiday shopping, gather supplies for their parties or just trying to get home before it gets dark. With more cars on the slippery roadways, it is easy to forget traffic rules that need to be followed in order to ensure the safety of everyone on the road.

In a tragic car accident in New York recently, one person died and another suffered injuries. According to the authorities, three vehicles were involved in the crash, and one of them was completely obliterated as a result. The crash happened during morning traffic hours and police suspect the head-on collision was between a car and a truck, with a third vehicle also becoming involved at some point. Debris was splashed across the road, with only a heap of metal left in place of one of the vehicles. Authorities are investigating the accident.

When someone is struggling with their injuries or the loss of a loved one from a car accident, the last thing that is likely on their mind is figuring out who is responsible for the crash that irrevocably changed their life. An investigation of this kind likely requires resources and time that accident victims do not have, and they may shy away from holding negligent people responsible as a result.

However, it is important to collect witness statements and police reports and analyze the scene of the accident to determine who was at fault. Even if the accident victim was partly at fault, this does not mean they may recover nothing.
