Front Car Crash

Reckless driving is very common today. More and more people are showing carelessness that is resulting in terrible accidents. Reckless driving leads to serious injuries and at times, even death. Speed limits are intended to keep traffic moving at a safe speed. Unfortunately, some drivers see these speed limits as inconvenient or unimportant, ignoring them in order to get through traffic faster. These reckless drivers put themselves in danger, others on the road, and pedestrians walking nearby with their inconsiderate, unsafe behavior. Even speeding unintentionally can be cause for an accident.

Recently in New York, a driver of a Lexus SUV died in a car accident while driving on a major local highway in the early morning hours. According to police, the driver of the Lexus SUV was speeding when he lost control of his car. He hit a metal barricade, which caused the car to go flying in midair, hitting a tree. The passenger in the car was uninjured.

EMS took the 29-year-old driver to the hospital where he was later declared dead. The passenger, a 28-year-old woman, was taken to a hospital as well.

The police later found a .25 caliber semiautomatic handgun from the SUV and arrested and charged the 29-year-old driver with Criminal Possession of a Weapon.

If the actions of another individual operating an automobile or other motor vehicle were careless, that negligent individual could be responsible for damages. Damages can include a personal injury caused by his actions for any pain and suffering, loss of wages, catastrophic injuries, and medical expenses. To determine the negligence of another, it is important that investigators immediately locate witnesses and obtain statements. A legal professional should coordinate a detailed investigation into the accident and then recommend the best course of legal action to take.
