Mystery car accidents are frustrating for the police, particularly when it involves children, as in this case, commented the police. The 15-year old was ejected from the car she was riding in when it veered off the road and went into a roll over. She was dead on impact with the ground.
The vehicle in which she was riding had been headed to the nearest town and was being driven by an 18-year old young man, who didn’t have that much experience driving. Ambulance crews took him to the hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries and discharged. As soon as he was discharged, he was arrested. Another 21-year old man was arrested at the scene of the accident, outlined the reporter.
Police aren’t certain yet as to what happened to cause the first car that the young girl was riding in to go off the road, but they have suspicions that the two cars that were traveling together, were speeding and racing one another. The police are asking for any eye witnesses to come forward and help them with the investigation, explained the source. They particularly want to talk to anyone who saw the blue Corsa before it flipped or a white Ford Fiesta. They’re hoping they can get to the bottom of what caused this fatality. This could very easily be a case of distracted driving on the part of the offending car in the accident. Police in Nassau and Suffolk Counties are on the lookout for distracted driving because this causes the most personal injury in car accident cases.
The family of the young girl will be completely devastated and likely want to investigate filing a wrongful death lawsuit. In order to do that, they need to take their case to an experienced expert.
When someone is killed as a result of the negligence of another, the New York Injury Attorney will make sure they get the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
