Corasanti, Doctor Who Killed Girl While Driving Drunk, Is Hit Himself By Drunk Driver
By Jonathan Wolfe, Fri, September 13, 2013
Sometimes what goes around really does come back around.
Yesterday, a New York doctor convicted of killing a teenage girl while driving drunk was struck and injured in a car accident. The driver who hit him was drunk.
Dr. James Corasanti, 58, was released in April after serving only eight months in jail for a DWI charge from the night he struck and killed 18-year-old Alix Rice while driving.
Yesterday, at 11 a.m., Corasanti’s car was hit by a 17-year-old driver with a .12 BAC. Corasanti and his secretary were both taken to local hospitals and treated for minor injuries.
Lawlor Quinlan, the attorney for Alix Rice’s family, commented on the irony of the event.
"It is an interesting twist of fate. To me, it's hard to have sympathy for him, I must confess,” he said.
Corasanti is currently beind sued by Rice’s family, who claims he was being reckless on the night he hit and killed their teenage daughter.
“Here we have drinking, speeding, texting, going over the white line, and leaving the scene of the accident,” Quinlan said.“Together, it’s a very strong case for punitive damages.”
Attorney Richard Sullivan, Corasanti’s lawyer, disagrees.
“There was no evidence in this case of erratic driving. It was a tragic accident, nobody disputes that it was an accident. It’s an accident, but it’s not a case we believe that warrants punitive damages.”
The 17-year-old who hit Corasanti was issued court appearance tickets and released into the custody of her mother.
