1 dead, 3 injured in multi-vehicle crash

On Dec. 26, a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in front of a New York pizzeria resulted in the death of a woman and left another person with serious injuries. According to the report, the accident took place near the intersection of Larkfield Road and Fifth Avenue in East Northport and involved at least four vehicles.

Fatigue increases likelihood of motor vehicle accidents

New Yorkers should avoid driving unless they have had seven or more hours of sleep, according to research. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports that it is twice as likely that drivers who sleep only five or six hours will be involved in an accident than those who have gotten the recommended amount. To reach this conclusion, the researchers examined data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey. Drivers in accidents that involved a visit from emergency services or that resulted in a car being towed away were asked how much sleep they had in the previous 24 hours.

The dangers drivers face on the road

There were 32,675 Americans who died in car crashes in 2014, which is about 10,000 less than in 2004. Advanced safety features in cars as well as better road design are credited in part for this decline. Nationally, there are an average of 10.2 deaths per 100,000 people. Researchers say that accidents are more common on rural roads in New York and elsewhere because drivers tend to drive faster.
