Deputies in upstate New York responded to a report about a multi-vehicle crash on a recent Thursday. Severe or fatal injuries are often the result of car accidents that involve several vehicles. Reportedly, the collision occurred shortly after noon in the Town of Ulysses.
Upon arrival at the crash scene, deputies reported finding three damaged vehicles, several injured victims and one man with fatal injuries. The accident investigation will likely be ongoing. According to a preliminary crash report, deputies suspect that the deceased driver of the pickup truck lost control of his vehicle and collided with two others.
Reportedly, the pickup truck was southbound when it strike a mailbox before careening across the road. The vehicle allegedly sideswiped a northbound passenger car before crashing head-on into a northbound SUV. The pickup driver died at the crash scene before paramedics could take him to a hospital. Reportedly, two occupants of the passenger car were transported to a medical facility for treatment of minor injuries while the SUV driver suffered critical injuries.
Victims of car accidents that were caused by other parties can pursue claims for financial relief through the civil justice system of New York. The legal process involving car accidents in which the parties who were at fault did not survive can be complicated. An experienced personal injury attorney can explain the process of filing a claim for monetary damages against the estate of the deceased driver. Legal counsel can also provide ongoing support and guidance throughout ensuing legal proceedings.
