A car accident occurred Tuesday in New York. The driver, Miguel Espinal, was a criminal who was asked by his brother to give college student Akeem Mark Smith a ride to the mechanic. The car accident occurred when Espinal was trying to get away from the police. He drove the wrong way down a highway in Westchester. After crashing his car, Espinal escaped from the scene and tried to get a gun from a police officer. As a result, he was shot, causing him to pass away. On the other hand, Smith surrendered and was released when police determined that he was not involved in criminal activity and was an innocent victim among the mess of the situation.
