Two Dead, Four Injured In Hempstead Collision

New York State Police Investigating Hempstead Car Accident Along Fulton Avenue That Killed Two People

Two Dead, Four Injured In Hempstead Collision

HEMPSTEAD, NEW YORK (April 30, 2024) – Two people have died and another four were injured in a Hempstead collision along Fulton Avenue.

Hempstead police officials are saying that the collision took place on Friday night. A 2005 Chrysler was involved in a collision with another vehicle.

That vehicle fled the scene and hit three other vehicles before catching fire. Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help all of the victims.

Sadly, two people died, and four more were taken to the hospital. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Hempstead Car Accidents

Speeding is one of the major causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “In 2020 there were an estimated 308,013 people injured (13% of total people injured) in speeding-related crashes. The number of speeding-related fatalities in 2020 increased by 17 percent from 2019, from 9,592 to 11,258.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries, including:

  • Burn injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Concussions

If a driver flees the scene of a collision, they could face criminal as well as civil penalties. Drivers may flee the scene of a collision because they are afraid of getting arrested. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after any crash. Evidence will ultimately be used to determine liability. Any person injured in a collision may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
