Dover couple, son killed in head-on car crash in New York

Posted in Vehicle Accidents,Wrongful death on August 29, 2012

Families are meant to be together and do things together like eating meals as a family, building memories, going on family vacations, taking road trips, and living their lives for one another. Unfortunately, one of the most tragic things that can ever happen to a family is dying as a result of a head-on collision with another vehicle.

One family, the Krolak family of Dover Delware, Patrick Krolak, 72, his wife Rita Krolak, 70, and their son, Patrick Krolak, were traveling together in their vehicle near Duane, NY when an SUV, driven by Peter Patrenicola, 62, crossed into on-coming traffic, hitting the Krolack’s vehicle head-on. Both vehicles flipped onto their roofs, but the members of the Krolack family didn’t survive – they were pronounced dead at the scene. Patrenicola’s vehicle flipped and burst into flames, but bystanders were able to pull him from the vehicle. He is recovering from his injuries at a hospital in Vermont.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, but no amount of investigation is going to bring back an entire family. Vehicle accidents like these are serious heart-breakers that we wish would never happen.
