Patchogue, NY- Crash injures 4, possibly 1 fatality on N Ocean Ave near Woodside.

According to Paul Ajlouny, New York car accident lawyer, “there are so many factors to consider in the devastating accident. One being the road conditions, the snow is piled and seeing approaching traffic may have been difficult.

The impact of the hit authorizes will need to investigate how fast the SUV was going. North Ocean Ave is notorious for speed, at least 80 mph even though the speed limit is 45 mph. North Ocean Ave is notorious for being dangerous. Its a highway with houses all along side of it.

However, until an investigation is completed, the accident may or may not have involved speeding. The car was hit on the driver and back door of the car, which is the softest place of the car. There is no protection there. It’s been reported that the other vehicle had minor damage, which prob means speeding might not be a factor.  Our prayers go out to the families of the teens involved in this accident.” states Mr.  Ajlouny.

Kaynen Peters and his two female passengers, Brandi Bass and Desiree Lamberson, both of Patchogue, along with Sanchez the driver of the SUV, were transported via ambulance to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center.

The sister of Brandi Bass posted on Facebook saying, “Brandi is in critical condition with a broken back, broken ribs and a ruptured spleen. My sister was on the way to save a life, after the driver of car, Kaynen Peters, got a text from his girlfriend saying that she was going to kill herself. All three jumped in the car to talk her out of it. They never made it out the driveway.”

Not necessarily. Cars today are designed to come apart in accidents. It’s a safety feature taken from NASCAR designed to lessen the force of impact and transfer less energy to the interior cabin. Also, an SUV wouldn’t have to be going that fast to cause that much damage to a small sedan considering the weight ratios. An SUV will have a lot of kentic energy being transferred into a much smaller and lighter vehicle. That would make the smaller car crumble more than if it had been hit by vehicle of equal size and weight.
