Couple Killed In Head-On Collision With Tractor-Trailer On Interstate Highway
A 67-year-old Navy veteran and retired New York City police detective were driving with his 66-year-old wife on I-84 near Fishkill, New York. The couple was returning home to Pennsylvania after celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary in Maine. Tragically, the couple was killed in a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer. There was evidence that the truck driver’s negligence was due to the length of time he had been on the road without rest. The couple left behind three sons and their families including grandchildren. Further, there was evidence that the economic loss due to the victims’ deaths was nearly $1,000,000. Prior to trial Mr. Marciano and Mr. MacAvoy obtained a favorable settlement on behalf of the family.
