No one likes to see an animal on the road. It’s a danger to everyone, and a tough choice has to be made quickly about how to avoid the animal and keep everyone safe. But when someone swerves to save an animal, the costs can be very high. The car accident lawyers in Boston at Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., want to talk about a recent event involving a young man merely doing the right thing, and it cost him his life and injuring his passenger.
What Happened in This Boston Car Accident?
In October 2020, according to police, a 31-year-old man died on Interstate 495. Seyhan Isik lost control of his car, a Mini-Cooper when he swerved to avoid an animal in the road. Quickly, he lost control of the car and struck a small tree. Even though he was wearing a seatbelt, he was pronounced dead at the scene, as well as the dog in the car. His passenger had minor injuries and was transported to Worcester.
Although the death is tragic, that simple reaction could have injured so many people. When someone loses control of a car, it endangers everyone on the road, regardless of their good intentions.
