Long Island man, William Billups, is being charged with second-degree manslaughter and other charges after his passenger died in a traffic accident while he was trying to escape police.
Roughly five minutes before the accident occurred, Billups was found speeding by police in Roosevelt. Police directed Billups to pull over for a routine traffic stop, but once both vehicles were off the road, Billups waited until the police officer exited his patrol car before speeding away. After about ten blocks, Billups ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle, sending both cars into the front yard of a neighboring house. All three people from the two vehicles involved in the accident were hospitalized and Billup’s passenger passed away shortly thereafter.
William Billups is currently on parole and has been arrested over 20 times for various offenses including felony robbery.

Snapchat, a social media app, recently came under fire for its “speed filter” feature, which tracks how fast someone is driving while they take a selfie. Attorneys are claiming that this feature has proved a contributing factor to many distracted driving accidents in the country.
One lawyer says that because Snapchat photos and videos disappear seconds after they are posted, they demand more concentration. Earlier this week, Georgia local Wentworth Maynard filed a legal complaint against Snapchat and a young driver for a car accident that resulted in Maynard’s serious brain injuries. The lawsuit claims that the driver, a young woman, was using Snapchat while she was driving at 100 miles per hour because she was using the speed filter feature.

Following a motor vehicle accident, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to attempt to get a statement from everyone involved in the incident. Unfortunately, in far too many instances, insurance companies later use these statements to try and avoid providing payment to individuals who suffered injuries in the accident.

While New York motorists are required by law to carry at least $25,000 in liability insurance coverage, the sad reality is that the full costs of injuries sustained in car accidents often far exceed this amount. If a driver only has the required minimum amount of liability insurance and causes an accident, those injured in the accident may wonder how they can receive compensation for injuries that are in excess of $25,000. Fortunately, individuals have the option to carry Supplemental Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist coverage that can help make up the difference between the costs of an accident and the insurance coverage of the responsible driver.
