A 59-year-old New York man died shortly after midnight on March 13 when he was hit head-on by an allegedly drunk driver. The man had just left work, and the accident occurred on Route 25A in Smithtown.
While the roads and interstates of New York are normally safe places for the average driver, nearly 30 people in the United States are killed by impaired drivers everyday. These crashes caused by impaired drivers cost over $59 million before considering immeasurable effects such as trauma and grief. Automobile accidents caused by drunk drivers are a serious matter; if you are a victim of personal injury caused by an impaired driver, you should consider your options and seek legal action.
