August 22, 2016

Police are investigating whether speed was a factor in a multi-vehicle crash on a major Long Island roadway that killed five people.

A 26-year-old man was driving a Subaru Outback eastbound on the expressway when he apparently lost control of the vehicle and crossed the grassy median. The Outback went airborne and struck two westbound vehicles, a BMW and a Honda. the driver of the Honda was also pronounced dead at the scene. An 81-year-old passenger in the BMW died at the hospital; his wife remains in critical condition.

The driver of the Outback and a passenger, his sister, were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver’s 10-year-old son was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition, but he could not be saved. His three-year-old niece was injured, but survived the crash. The family members were on their way to the Splish Splash water park for the child’s 10th birthday party.

Seriously injured victims or family members of lost loved ones may have the right to compensation. It is important to consult an experienced auto accident attorney.
