#visionzeroisntzero: Cars Continue to Kill in New York City

The experienced and dedicated motor vehicle accident attorneys continue to fight for the rights of victims of criminal and negligent drivers in the City. We continue to implore the City, the Mayor's office, and the state capitol to do something to protect those who have been hurt while walking in New York City. On Wednesday night, just before Thanksgiving, a 54-year-old man was fatally struck by a sedan as he crossed Starr Avenue at Van Dam Street in Long Island City. He was rushed to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center with severe head and leg trauma. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. He was not the only one.

The 24-year-old driver of a Mercedes rear-ended a Nissan Murano at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Stanley Avenue. He tried to flee the scene, killing a woman trying to get into her Toyota Sienna. Three other people were injured as the driver barrelled into other cars trying to flee, and then ending with a desperate attempt to carjack other vehicles before he was finally arrested.

The continued danger and toll of irresponsible and criminally negligent and even criminal motorists in New York City continues.
