Two People Injured In Hopewell Car Accident

New York State Police Investigating Hopewell Rear End Collision Along Spangle Street

Two People Injured In Hopewell Car Accident

HOPEWELL, NEW YORK (April 21, 2024) – Two people were injured in a Hopewell rear-end collision along Spangle Street.

Hopewell officials are saying that the incident took place around 3:45 p.m. on Friday. One driver was slowing to make a left turn when they were rear-ended by a driver who failed to slow down.

Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help all of the people injured. Both drivers were taken to the hospital with injuries.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For New York Car Accidents

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released its first projections for traffic fatalities in 2023, estimating that 9,330 people died in traffic crashes in the first three months of the year. This represents a decrease of about 3.3% as compared to 9,645 estimated fatalities during the same time in 2022.” Many factors could contribute to a car accident.

  • Inclement weather
  • Driver intoxication
  • Vehicle system failures
  • Distracted driving

Speeding remains one of the leading causes of car accidents. It is more difficult to stop vehicles at higher speeds. If a driver fails to slow down in order to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The vast majority of rear-end collisions are avoidable and involve some amount of driver error. Any person who is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
