Mother Killed at 138th Street and Bruckner Boulevard: A Fatal Intersection

At the end of her shift at Dufour Pastry, Sheniqua Silva was crushed to death by a Coca-Cola truck that jumped the curb and slammed into her and four others at 138th Street and Bruckner Boulevard in Port Morris in the Bronx on Monday. A Nissan sedan, which was trying to get onto the Bruckner Expressway, tried to pass the truck and crashed into it, causing the chain reaction that killed the mother of five.

These accidents, and others, are all too common in New York City. The NYPD tracks these accidents, and the intersection of East 138th Street and Bruckner Boulevard is extremely dangerous. In August 2015, there were 20 collisions at that intersection, including with a pedestrian who was injured. Five people were injured at that intersection in July of this year. Another two people suffered the same fate in June.
