It's not unusual for Canandaigua residents to hear news reports about car accidents caused by drunk drivers. On Aug. 27, however, the news was pretty unusual. Reports are that chaos ensued when seven accidents happened within 12 minutes – all allegedly caused by a single drunk driver.
The accident investigation will keep officials busy for some time. Once completed, however, the victims will be in a position to decide whether seeking compensation for injuries or property damage is appropriate. With multiple insurance companies involved, it's also likely that skilled negotiation techniques will be helpful to their recoveries.
