New York car accident leads to 2 deaths

Two individuals recently died in New York, leaving surviving family members and friends grieving over the loss of their loved ones. The car accident took place along Interstate 90 on July 4, shortly prior to midnight. The two people who died were both passengers in a vehicle that police said was traveling at a high rate of speed.

The speeding car struck another car, spun around and ran into a semi-truck before splitting into two sections. The two passengers in the vehicle were ejected. Both died at the accident scene, according to authorities.

The two deceased passengers were 23 and 24 years old. The 24-year-old male driver of the vehicle they were riding in suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital. Police said that his injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old driver of the car that was first hit suffered injuries, and he was taken to the hospital. The semi-truck driver suffered no injuries.

No charges were filed, but police continued to investigate the car accident. Authorities didn't say whether alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. The family members of the deceased passengers may elect to file wrongful death claims against the driver of the car, seeking damages that can help to address the financial losses and other damages caused by the fatal accident. The injured victim in the car that was struck might also choose to file a personal injury claim, with a successful outcome potentially leading to monetary compensation to help with hospital bills and other accident-related expenses. Competent proof of negligence -- such as speeding -- must be submitted to a New York civil court to establish the driver’s liability before the court will consider any specific claims of financial damage.
