Trial begins for dad accused in fatal accident

Opening statements in deadly crash

BUFFALO, NY - Opening statements are expected to begin Wednesday in the case against a father accused of crashing his car and killing his son.

The crash happened last October on Route 16 in Sardinia when the truck Kevin McCabe was driving hit a tractor trailer. McCabe's four-year-old son died and his eight-year-old niece was hurt.

Erie County Sheriff's investigators say Kevin McCabe was impaired by an illegal drug at the time of the accident. 

If McCabe is found guilty, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
