At around 5:30 p.m., emergency crews quickly responded to reports of a crash on Route 59 (Stepney Road), near the Monroe-Easton border, and discovered two vehicles involved in a head-on crash. Several victims had to be extricated from their vehicles. The driver of one vehicle sustained serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Multiple-vehicle accidents that result in injuries or fatalities have to be investigated for DUI, product defects, reckless behavior and other possible angles related to negligence. If any of these factors are established, involved parties or their families may be eligible for damages/compensation under ideal circumstances and with the help of expert legal counsel.
