2-car fatal accident in New York takes 2 lives

When a passenger is killed in an auto accident, that person's estate is entitled to collect damages from any of the drivers who negligently contributed to causing the accident. This would normally be done through the passenger’s estate. If the passenger was in the car that caused the fatal accident, his or her estate may still recover from the driver. New York, like most states, has a form of comparative negligence that governs recoveries in negligence cases.

In a fatal car accident in the Bronx on April 29, a 26-year-old woman who was a passenger in a 2004 Honda died after the vehicle she occupied collided with a tree. In photos posted with the news article the car appears mangled into an unidentifiable collage of steel, but the tree appears to be largely undamaged.
