Car Crash Kills Two

With such devastating consequences a vehicle that was been in pursuit by a police car came off a public road and collided into three young girls a young boy and an adult woman.  The woman and a young boy sadly lost their lives and the girls were in hospital for the injuries they have sustained.

Further details of this tragic accident are found at Daily Mirror – fatal car accident.

It is reported that the car was being pursued by the Police as it was suspected as being stolen in the South London area.

The alleged stolen vehicle was a Ford Focus.  It is said by the Daily Mirror that:

The family of five had reportedly been heading to the park when the black-coloured car careered across a grass verge and hit them.

The Metropolitan Police have advised that a 23 year man has been arrested of causing death by dangerous driving.

Death by Dangerous Driving

Where the police are involved such as in this tragic case, the IPCC [Independent Police Complaints Commission] will undertake an independent investigation into the collision to establish if the police officers should have pursued the vehicle taking into account the seriousness of the offence and the safety to members of the public in continuing to target the offender.

Whatever the merits of the pursuit of the Police, the those affected by the loss of a loved one will be able to seek compensation for fatal car accident against the motor insurance bureau as the driver (bearing in mind the vehicle is stolen) is unlikely to have a valid motor insurance police to cover the consequences of the loss of life, hurt and damage to the family left behind.
