New York State Police Investigating Lewiston Car Accident By Walmore Road and Upper Mountain Road

One Person Killed In Lewiston Car Accident

LEWISTON, NEW YORK (March 30, 2024) – One person was killed and two people were injured in a Lewiston car accident by the intersection of Walmore Road and Upper Mountain Road.

Lewiston police officials are saying that the collision took place around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday. A driver was traveling on Walmore road and failed to stop at a stop sign before being hit by another vehicle.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help all of the victims. Sadly, one person died and two others were taken to the hospital in order to receive care.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For New York Car Accidents

The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. Many accidents are due to driver fatigue. According to the National Safety Council, “Driving after going more than 20 hours without sleep is the equivalent of driving with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08% – the U.S. legal limit. You are three times more likely to be in a car crash if you are fatigued.” Many other factors could contribute to car accidents including:

  • Dangerous left turns
  • Poor road conditions
  • Vehicle system failures
  • Inclement weather

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any driver who goes past a yield sign without yielding. It is important that accident victims understand that they do have rights. Any person who is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
