Long Island car crash kills 2, injures 2

Two men have died after they were involved in what is being described as a “violent” crash on Long Island last week.

The incident happened around 6:35 p.m. Friday, May 10.

According to the Suffolk County Police Department, a 53-year-old man crossed over into the southbound lane of Commack Road in Deer Park and struck a vehicle driven by a 32-year-old man.

The two men were pronounced dead at the scene of the car crash.

A 24-year-old woman who was a passenger in the vehicle that was struck was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital. Her present condition is not known, but it is believed that her injuries are serious. One account of the incident said she was “fighting for her life.”

The woman’s 3-year-old son was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Hospital in West Islip. He is listed in critical condition.

Authorities are doing their best to determine what led to the 53-year-old changing lanes at such an inopportune time. As we have noted before, not all car accidents are due to the negligence of one of the parties involved.

However, some of them are.

People who are involved in car crashes that result from the other driver’s negligence generally have the opportunity to file a lawsuit over the incident. If that lawsuit is successful, they may be able to obtain recompense for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. In many circumstances, that recompense goes a long way toward defraying the costs of the accident — an expression we are using in both the literal and figurative senses.
