Fatal car accident in Brooklyn claims 1 life

New York police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that claimed one life. This event occurred March 11 in the Brooklyn area. The driver responsible for this fatal car accident did survive, though was initially listed in critical condition. Regardless of whether this individual ultimately survives, he may be held accountable for the death of his passenger.

According to reports, at approximately 3:30 a.m., a vehicle slammed into a light pole at Tilden Avenue and Kings Highway. The car burst into flames, but a good Samaritan was able to put out the fire before rescue teams arrived on the scene. The driver -- a 26-year-old male -- and his passenger -- a 30-year-old male -- were both extricated from the vehicle and transported to Kings County Hospital for treatment. The passenger ultimately succumbed to his injuries. The current condition of the driver is unknown.

Investigators do believe that speeding contributed to this event. While the posted speed limit on this stretch of road is 25 mph, authorities say the driver was going much faster, causing him to lose control and hit the pole. Police are still investigating this incident. It is unclear if any charges are pending in this case.

Losing a loved one in a fatal car accident would be difficult for anyone to bear. The surviving family members of this victim are sure to face emotional trauma on top of a number of unexpected expenses as a result of this event -- neither of which will be easy with which to deal. Thankfully, the laws of New York allows the family members of those killed in such incidents to seek compensation for their losses. Legal counsel can help them seek maximum relief by filing the appropriate claims in civil court against the driver or his estate, if he too passes from his injuries.
