Running from a Deadly Accident that Caused Serious Harm

This crash involving an SUV and two other vehicles resulted in three people being seriously injured. One person never made it home that day.

“This is one of those accidents that seem to come out of nowhere and leave the victims wondering what hit them,” said Charlie Donahue, a New Hampshire personal injury lawyer located in Keene. Donahue handles injury cases in New Hampshire and across the United States. “Cases involving hit and runs, like this one I heard about, are always difficult for the victims, especially when the perpetrator leaves the scene,” he added.

Evidently what happened in this particular case is that an unidentified car made a left turn in front of a northbound vehicle being driven by teenager, York Lewis (names have been changed to protect the victims). Lewis lost control of his Mitsubishi, swerved across the median and crashed head-on into a southbound Ford Expedition. The vehicle continued, and then also hit a Toyota that was traveling behind the Ford Expedition.

When EMS crews arrived at the scene of the grisly accident, they had to pronounce the driver of the Ford Expedition, as he had died as a result of his injuries sustained in the accident. The other victims, including the seriously injured Ford driver’s daughter, were taken to the nearest medical facility for treatment. The driver of the Mitsubishi was badly hurt as well and taken to another center for assistance. The third victim, with minor injuries was treated and released.

Evidently, eyewitnesses indicated that the cause of this horrific smash-up may have been street racing. Unfortunately, no one was able to get a clear look at, description or license plate number of the driver that left the scene of the accident. “When the police do find the driver of that mystery car, it’s likely he will be charged. When he is found, there will be several victims wanting to recover compensation for their injuries and for the wrongful death of the father driving the Ford Explorer,” indicated New Hampshire personal injury lawyer Charlie Donahue.

“This case cries for justice, and with some good police work, justice is what these families will get when all is said and done. If you have been in a situation like this, in a car accident that caused you or a family member serious harm or death, give me a call and I will let you know what your rights are and what to expect if you wish to file a personal injury lawsuit. That is what I do and that is what I am good at – fighting for your rights and for justice,” stated Charlie Donahue, a New Hampshire personal injury lawyer who works long and hard to make the legal system work for those who need his help.
