1 Dead In Car Crash on Taconic State Parkway

On April 16, 2020, in Motor Vehicle Accident, by John A. Weber IV, ESQ

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.

You should know some of the major reasons for accidents and should be careful to avoid them. Here are some examples:

  1. Distracted Driving

The most obvious reason for an accident is distracted driving. Texting or calling while driving can lead to a head-on collision or divert your vehicle, causing you to hit another car or something on or off the roadway.

  • Speeding

Speeding thrills, but it also kills. Driving at high speeds is not permitted by law and can land you in trouble and/or potential physical harm. Often while speeding, drivers lose control of the vehicle.

  • Weather Conditions

Bad weather conditions can wreak havoc and lead to unavoidable motor vehicle accidents. Drivers often fail to exercise the required level of caution to negotiate the treacherous conditions.

  • Night Driving

Driving at night can be riskier than during the daytime. Lack of visibility plays a role as antagonist and increases the chances of accidents. You need to be extra vigilant while driving at night.

  • Wrong-Way Driving

Driving on the wrong side of the road may seem unusual but can happen through a lack of alertness. Not being in the proper lane or failing to follow traffic rules can cause horrible car accidents.

  • Driving While Impaired or Under the Influence

It is very important to comply with the law and refrain from getting behind the wheel when you have been drinking or partaking in the use of drugs.  These accidents are similar to distracted driving in that the impaired state or concentration of the driver impacts their ability to take effective measures to avoid accidents.

Final Thoughts

If you find yourself in one of these situations, the first thing you need is medical attention. The second task should be to consult a motor vehicle accident attorney in Queens, or surrounding NYC areas, to learn your rights.
