Two People Killed In Laurel Hollow DUI Car Accident on Northern Boulevard

LAUREL HOLLOW, NEW YORK (August 20, 2023) – A couple in a Ferrari have tragically died in a Laurel Hollow car accident with drunk driver on Northern Boulevard.

Laurel Hollow police officials are saying that the accident took place early Saturday. The driver of an SUV crossed over a yellow divider and struck a Ferrari with two people inside.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victims. One person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another person died after being taken to the hospital. Police arrested the driver of the SUV on suspicion of DUI.

Liability For New York DUI Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured in car accidents involving drunk drivers. According to the NHTSA, “Every day, about 32 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes — that’s one person every 45 minutes. In 2020, 11,654 people died in alcohol-impaired driving traffic deaths — a 14% increase from 2019. These deaths were all preventable.” Even moderate amounts of alcohol can substantially impair drivers in the following ways.

  • Drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05% or higher have a hard time staying in their lane.
  • Drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05% or higher have delayed reaction times.
  • Drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05% or higher have reduced coordination.

It is illegal for any driver to operate their vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or higher. If a driver causes an accident while intoxicated, they may face criminal as well as civil liability. Commercial drivers are held to an even stricter standard. They must not drive with a BAC of 0.04% or higher. The family of any person that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
