Man dies in crash after other driver fails to stop at stop sign

Car accidents happen throughout Syracuse and the state of New York every day. While they are unfortunate, many of them are merely fender-benders that take up time and bring stress to the day. But for the truly unlucky, these accidents can bring severe injuries or even death.

Recently, a man driving a pickup truck in the town of Hannibal was killed when another driver failed to stop at a stop sign. The other driver, age 71, was headed down Route 7 just before 11p.m. on a recent Tuesday when he failed to stop. After the two vehicles collided, the situation was made even worse by an oncoming fuel tanker.

The tanker, being driven by a 31-year-old man from Weedsport, crashed into both vehicles and caused a fire. The pickup truck driver died at the scene of the accident. The 71-year-old man was seriously injured and taken to a hospital in Syracuse. The tanker driver got off with only minor injuries and was treated at the scene of the crash.

Although no tickets were reportedly issues as of a day after the crash, it will be interesting to see if that changes in the future. The family of the man who died in the crash will likely want to know exactly what happened and who is to blame for the tragic loss.

It will be important for the family to work with a lawyer who can help investigate the incident and reconstruct what really happened at the scene of the crash. This information can be vital when filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
