Comment from Anidjar and Levine:
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “The report of fatal accidents are always heart pricking. This accident involving a driver who reportedly slept off while driving would have been avoided by getting enough sleep before driving. Also, the use of seat belt is highly necessary for safety. However, please always seek help for any casualties on your friends or family after an accident. We wish all parties involved directly or indirectly in the accident, speedy recovery from their injuries”
