Six People Injured In Shandaken Car Accident After Van Rolled Over On State Route 28

ULSTER COUNTY, NEW YORK (March 11, 2022) – Multiple people were injured in a Shandaken car accident after a passenger van rolled over on State Route 28.

Ulster County police officials are saying that the collision took place at 2:46 p.m. Wednesday, March 9. A group of 11 people were returning to New York City from a hiking trip.

That driver of the passenger van lost control on the slick roadway and rolled over before hitting a tree. A total of six people had to be taken to the hospital.

An investigation into the Shandaken collision remains ongoing at this time.

Liability In Ulster County Van Accidents

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the Centers For Disease Control, “Reducing motor vehicle crash deaths was one of the great public health achievements of the 20th century for the US. However, more than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million are injured each year from motor vehicle crashes.” Vans can be particularly dangerous for a number of reasons.

  • They have a high center of gravity and are more prone to tipping over.
  • Vans are constantly in use and are more prone to breaking down if not properly maintained.
  • Vans have large blind spots that can obscure the presence of smaller vehicles.

Those that drive commercial vans will typically need a commercial driver’s license and are held to a high standard in terms of safety. Many rollover collisions are due to drivers that are traveling too fast for the prevailing conditions of the roadway. Even if a driver isn’t speeding, they could be liable for a crash. Drivers must slow down periods of inclement weather such as rain or snow that can make the roadways slick. Failure to do this may amount to negligence. Victims of rollover collisions tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Organ damage

Any person that is injured in a van accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It is extremely important that evidence is properly preserved after an accident. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
