Goodman Acker P.C. is representing four people who were involved in a tragic
car accident early this April. The victims in the crash involved a 20-year
old man, Zachary Garrison, and his 20-year-old girlfriend, Angel Careathers,
both of whom were killed in the collision. Two passengers in the back
seat, Angel’s sister Krystal, a 16-year-old, and Zachary’s
sister Mesiah, 18-year-old, were seriously injured.
The accident took place at Peterson Playfield, a park located at the intersection
of Whitcomb and Pickford Road in Detroit, Michigan. Garrison and Careathers,
along with their sisters were sitting in Garrison’s car at the park.
Robert Chaney, an engineer at GM, was speeding down Pickford Road when
he lost control of his vehicle, ran off the road, struck a curb and went
airborne crashing into Garrison’s vehicle.
Chaney was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence causing death.
Barry Goodman, Senior Partner at Goodman Acker, is representing the victims’
families against Chaney.
“We are in the business of helping families rebuild their lives.
Although there is no amount of money that will ever make up for the loss
of their loved ones, we will make sure that Chaney is held responsible
for his actions, not only financially but criminally so that justice may
be served,” says Goodman.
Goodman and the parents of the young couple were recently interviewed on
WXYZ Detroit. This is the first time the parents have spoken out after
the crash. Watch the exclusive video here:
