Driver Charged in Connection With Car Crash
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A fatal vehicle
accident occurred around 8:00 at night in Freeport, Long Island on Wednesday. The
accident took place after a driver of a 2001 Buick was seen speeding by
police officers. The officers followed the Buick and pulled the vehicle
over, but the driver got away. Then, the driver of the Buick failed to
stop at a stop sign and drove through an intersection, causing the car
to collide with a 2012 Mercedes-Benz. As a result, both vehicles traveled
to the front lawn of a home. Tragically, the passenger of the Buick passed
away. The driver of the Mercedes has a broken jaw from the accident. The
driver of the Buick suffered injuries and is facing several charges.
Running stop signs and red lights is extremely dangerous. Every year, about
700,000 accidents take place at stop signs. Additionally, speeding is
a factor that is involved in one out of three fatal vehicle accidents.
Speeding often is involved in the failure to stop at stop signs as well,
as speeding lengthens the time it takes for a vehicle to come to a complete stop.
