A single-car crash has claimed two lives and sent a third person to the hospital, according to local sources. New York police responded to the car accident during the late evening of Sept. 18. As the driver was among those pronounced dead, there have been no charges filed, but the police investigation into the specifics of the accident is still underway as of this report.
Preliminary reports suggest the vehicle, driven by a 20-year-old man, may have been speeding at the time of the accident. It appears the driver attempted to overtake a second vehicle by swerving in front of it, before attempting to return to the original lane to catch an exit. The move apparently failed, sending the car onto the shoulder of the highway.
