(PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Five teenagers have died in a car crash in Farmingdale, ABC News has reported, leaving an entire community in mourning. (Famingdale Mourns 5 Teens Killed in Crash, May 12, 2014). The teenagers were classmates at Farmingdale High School and had reportedly been hanging out together in a parking lot a half a mile away from the accident early Saturday morning, though officials are still investigating what ultimately caused the accident.
According to the reports, the teenagers’ car crossed over into oncoming traffic and crashed into a suburban. Four of the teenagers were believed to have died instantly while the fifth died in the hospital late Sunday evening. Locals held a vigil and people have been leaving flowers and notes at the sight of the deadly crash. The school’s principal, Glen Zakian, said he expected Monday to be the hardest day of his career. The school will be providing grief counselors, social workers, guidance counselors, and school psychologists to assist both students and faculty.
“It is profoundly devastating to see the kind of impact an accident like this can have not just on those involved and their families, but an entire community,” said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “Parents of other children can empathize with the absolute horror the deceased’s parents are feeling and everyone who knew the five young men will feel some degree of loss. Thankfully the school will be providing resources for those who need them and the community is coming together to grieve. This is a truly heartbreaking tragedy and our hearts go out to everyone in Farmingdale.”
“When accidents happen, it can be paralyzing and those affected may have no idea what to do next. While it is great that the school is providing emotional and psychological support, people have rights they may want to protect, and, unfortunately, though they might not want to think about it now, they should because the further away from the time of the accident, the harder it can be to piece what happened back together. That is why it is critical to contact an experienced expert right away.
