Eight Injured In Staten Island Car Accident

STATEN ISLAND, CALIFORNIA (February 17, 2024) – Two police officers and six civilians were injured in a Staten Island collision near the intersection of Hunton Street and Richmond Road.

New York City police officers are saying that the collision took place around 7:20 p.m. on Saturday. A police vehicle was involved in a collision with two civilian vehicles.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victims. A total of eight people were taken to the hospital.

One person sustained a dislocated arm. A full investigation into the Staten Island collision remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For New York City Car Accidents

Speed is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2020, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

When a driver fails to slow down in order to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Sadly, though, drivers will often do everything in their power to deny liability if they are involved in a collision. This is why it is so important that evidence is properly preserved. A personal injury attorney can examine the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
