Repeat drunk driver leaves New York man dead in crash

The surviving family of a 19-year-old man killed in a car accident in Syracuse, New York, has learned that the driver of the other vehicle was a repeat drunk driving offender. Syracuse police reported that the 38-year-old male driver of the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado that hit the young man's car was under the influence at the time of the accident on Hiawatha Boulevard West.

New York man allegedly drunk at the time of auto accident

A man was allegedly driving under the influence when he was involved in a recent car accident in Suffolk County. The auto accident injured two people in a head-on collision, and one is in serious condition. The New York man was charged with driving while intoxicated and was detained overnight.

Driving while impaired: older drivers more susceptible

When many of us think of impaired or drunk drivers, we often think of teenagers and young adults. We expect that they are relatively inexperienced and have less of an appreciation of the dangers of impaired driving. While younger drivers do compose a significant number of impaired drivers, a new study has found that older drivers are often much more susceptible to becoming impaired after just a single drink. One glass of wine or a bottle of beer is often enough to interfere with drivers over 55's ability to drive safely.

Why New York families may want to consider wrongful death suits

In the aftermath of a fatal accident, a victim's family is often devastated and desperate for answers as to what happened. People who are killed in accidents cannot fight for justice themselves, which is why it is up to their families to take action against the party responsible. By filing a wrongful death lawsuit, families can pursue not only compensation, but a sense of justice as well.

Wrong-way drivers may face harsher penalties, felonies

Drivers across the country know how dangerous it is to drive while intoxicated or impaired. There have been marketing and educational efforts launched to increase awareness of how deadly it is to drink and drive, but too many drivers in New York and nationwide fail to take this risk seriously. By neglecting their responsibility to comply with state and federal traffic laws, drunk drivers are putting every other motorist in danger of getting catastrophically injured or killed in a major auto accident.
