New City, NY (May 08, 2021) – A teenager was killed on Friday, May 7th during a car accident involving a drunk teenage driver in Clarkstown.

The three-vehicle collision took place at about 10:50 p.m. on Congers Road in New City.  

Four of the five people who were injured during the impact were taken to area hospitals for medical treatment. 

A 16-year-old and 17-year-old sustained the most critical injuries. Both were passengers in a car being driven by an 18-year-old who was later charged with driving under the influence.

Fatal DUI Crashes in New City

5.08 New City, NY - 16-Year-Old Boy Killed in DUI Crash on Congers Rd

Drivers with a blood-alcohol level of at least 0.08% are, according to federal law, driving under the influence. This is also true of drunk driving laws in all 50 states and the District of Columbia with the notable exception of Utah. Drunk drivers are a primary causative factor in around 34% of all car accident-related deaths nationwide.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving, a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping drunk driving, stated that about 300,000 people drive under the influence of alcohol every day with only 13% ever being caught. Adults in their early to mid-20s are the most frequent violators of this law. 

After losing a loved one in a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent New York car accident by no fault of the victim, it may feel like no amount of compensation could make you feel complete again. While it is true that no financial restitution can ever fully make up for your losses, filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties can go a long way toward helping you find some semblance of peace again.
