One Person Killed In Camillus Car Accident on State Route 321

CAMILLUS, NEW YORK (February 21, 2024) – One person has tragically died in a Camillus head-on car accident on State Route 321 by Flat Rock Road.

Camillus police officials are saying that the incident took place around 9:01 a.m. on January 30. A driver lost control of their vehicle before crossing into opposing lanes of traffic and hitting a Buick.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victim. The driver of the Buick was taken to Upstate University Hospital but later died due to their injuries.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Camillus Car Accidents

Head-on crashes are among the most dangerous types of collisions that a person can be involved in. They account for only around 2% of all collisions but are involved in over 10% of all traffic fatalities. Many collisions are due to speeding. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2021, 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

It can be hard to know what to do after any car accident. This is especially true for families that have lost someone due to the negligence of another driver. However, accident victims do have rights. The family of any person that died in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
