A Massachusetts car accident on the Martha’s Vineyard estate of Caroline Kennedy has claimed the lives of two people. Caroline inherited the property from her mom Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
The Martha’s Vineyard auto crash happened on the Aquinnah estate at around midday on March 23 when the driver of a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser hit a tree while backing her vehicle down a private driveway. Her car lurched forward, hitting an electrical box and porch before going down a hill and hitting another tree in a head-on crash. State police say the vehicle traveled 319 feet.
Killed in the Aquinnah car accident were the driver of the Toyota, 70-year-old West Tisbury resident Judith Morse, and front seat passenger Susan Lambard. The passenger in the back seat, 68-year-old Susan Papanicolaou, sustained minor injuries.
The authorities are trying to determine what caused the single-car crash.
Massachusetts Single-Car Collisions
There doesn’t have to be more than one vehicle involved for you to have grounds for a Boston injury lawsuit. Sometimes, it is the driver of the vehicle you were riding in who was negligent. A single-car accident can also occur because of a product defect, in which cause you might be able to file a Massachusetts auto products liability lawsuit against a car manufacturer. Other possibly negligent parties-depending on the specifics of what happened-might might include the government entity responsible for maintaining a dangerous road or the owner of the a private property that failed to remove unnecessary hazards from a driveway or sidewalk.
The best way to find out whether you have a case is to speak with an experienced Boston injury lawyer right away.
