New York has witnessed a large number of motor vehicle accidents over the years and another one has recently occurred at East Fishkill. With one fatality and minor injuries to other victims, the accident took place at the Taconic State Parkway.
It is yet to be seen if the surviving victims will be pursuing litigation or whether they are hiring auto accident attorneys.
What Happened Exactly?
On Tuesday, one of the drivers lost his life in a three-car crash on the Taconic State Parkway in East Fishkill. State police said that the collision occurred at the intersection of Carpenter road and the parkway.
It was discovered in the initial investigation that William T. Faint, 62, of Yorktown, was driving east on Carpenter Road in his 2006 Ford Taurus. He tried to cross the parkway but failed to yield the right of way to two cars travelling south.
A 2016 GMC Sierra, driven by Alam B. Kinghan, 60, of Croton-on-Hudson, and a 2010 Toyota Matrix, driven by Rachel A. Rosales, 60, of New York, simultaneously struck Faint’s car.
According to police, Faint’s car spun around before striking a utility pole, where it came to rest. Faint succumbed to the injuries and was declared dead after life-saving measures were administered but were unsuccessful.
Kinghan and his passenger, Richard W. Smith, were not injured. Rosales and her passenger, Mary S. Nessinger, both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Vassar Medical Center by EmStar.
The Bottom Line:
The injured parties will face a lot of issues after this accident. While we can’t bring back those individuals who have lost their lives in the accident, the ones who have suffered physical, as well as financial damage, can get compensation. If you have suffered from an accident and are suffering due to another person’s negligence, it’s time to contact an auto accident attorney in the Bronx to pursue compensation.
