New York City accident kills 1, injures 6

A 23-year-old New York City woman was killed and six people suffered injuries in a two-car accident in Queens County on Sept. 11. According to an NYPD report, the cause of the crash, which took place in South Ozone Park at approximately 4:30 a.m., is still under investigation.

The high-speed collision was captured by surveillance cameras mounted at the intersection of Linden Boulevard and 120th Street. The footage shows an Audi sedan flipping onto its roof and striking a wall after being struck on the side by a Honda sedan as it proceeded across the intersection. Responding police officers concluded that the driver of the Audi had ignored a stop sign immediately before getting hit by the Honda. The 53-year-old woman behind the wheel of the Honda has been charged with driving without a valid driver's license.

The six occupants of the Audi all suffered injuries in the car accident. The group had been out celebrating a birthday. The 23-year-old woman who died suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital. Another one of the Audi's occupants suffered critical injuries and was taken by ambulance to Elmhurst hospital. The other five accident victims were reported to be in stable condition.

When lawsuits are filed following this type of accident, claims of contributory negligence are not uncommon. A personal injury attorney may take a proactive approach and counter such arguments by clearly establishing that an accident was unavoidable. This kind of evidence may be found in police reports and on footage recorded by security cameras.
