It does not matter what part of New York you are driving in, there is always the chance of a car accident. Some people are involved in an accident due to their own negligence, but others are killed or injured when another driver makes a mistake on the road.
Recently, a man from Dansville was killed in a car accident near the intersection of Schuster Road and Route 256. The accident occurred at approximately 6 a.m.
According to Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies, a 22-year-old man from Livonia attempted to pass a dump truck. While doing so, the man drove his vehicle into one driven by a 41-year-old man.
The driver of the second vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, with the 22-year-old man suffering injuries. Two passengers in the vehicle that was struck, also from Dansville, were injured in the accident and taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for the treatment of injuries.
There is no additional information at this time as to why the man attempted to pass the dump truck, thus leading to the fatal accident.
Had the 22-year-old man obeyed the rules of the road, this incident would have been avoided. Unfortunately, he made the mistake of driving into the other lane, which led to the death of one man and injuries to two others.
The man who caused the accident was also taken to the hospital for treatment. In the near future, he will find himself answering a lot of questions from police as they attempt to determine what happened and whether charges should be filed.
