Alleged drunk driver causes critical injuries in New York crash

Most people are aware that if they are intoxicated and choose to get behind the wheel of a car, they are endangering themselves and others. Yet reports of drunk driving accidents are still constantly in the news. In a recent New York accident, an alleged drunk driver slammed into another vehicle that was stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 287. The 22-year-old man, who is from a neighboring state, is in custody in lieu of $100,000 bond as he awaits a hearing for charges of drunk driving and vehicular assault.

A fatal pedestrian accident is not how a family expects a loved one's birthday to end.

A minor car accident doesn't always mean minor injuries

You’re driving down the road, and as you’re about to make your way through that intersection you have been through a thousand times, another driver T-bones you from the left. He didn’t see the red light. The accident is shocking, but you handle it well: pull over on the side of the road, call the police and exchange insurance information, and when the police officer asks you how you feel, you say, “I’m fine.”
