Six New York boys were seriously as a result of a two-vehicle collision. A story from the Times Herald-Record said the accident happened at approximately 10:15 p.m. on Thursday night, at the intersection of State Route 302 and Ulsterville Road in Crawford, New York.
Officers with the Crawford Police Department stated their initial investigation shows a black Acura sedan was following a red Jeep carrying five passengers. When the Acura struck the rear-end of the Jeep, the SUV rolled several times before coming to rest on the side of the highway.
One occupant of the Jeep was airlifted to a Valhalla hospital for treatment for head and leg injuries, while the others were taken by ambulance to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries sustained in the New York car accident.
Recent studies show that teenage male drivers are at the highest risk of being involved in a car accident. Research from the National Safety Council shows 16-year-old males had the highest number of accidents of any age demographic examined, with 210 drivers per 1,000 being involved in accidents.
The Car Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices believe talking to your teen driver about the dangers of the road, in addition good driving habits by example, is an important way to prevent car accident injuries involving young drivers.
