Washington, D.C car crash claims a life

A motor vehicle accident in Northeast Washington, D.C. claimed the life of a man on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 12. The car crash involved two vehicles traveling on the inbound New York Avenue lanes. The collision occurred at around 6:10 that evening, at peak of rush hour.

Mistaken accounts from the fire department initially reported that the crash had involved three vehicles, but later, the police report showed only two. The current updated police account describes a black Kia traveling west when it collided with a second vehicle moving in the same direction. The impact resulted in the Kia being forced over the curb sideways where it struck a light pole. Officials from the fire department who arrived at the scene tweeted photos of said vehicle wrapped around the pole.

The second vehicle slid sideways over a curb as well. Officials from the D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department pulled two individuals from the wreckage. The driver of the second vehicle suffered only minor injuries. The driver of the Kia was unresponsive and later died at the hospital.

This account gives no details over what caused the crash or who may be responsible. If an investigation into the car crash determines any apparent fault on the part of the driver of the second car, the family of the man who died may choose to seek the legal counsel of an attorney to explore their options in filing a wrongful death suit. Anyone in Washington, D.C. who has lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident caused by negligence has every right to contact a lawyer.
