Activist groups are in arms over the recent tragic automobile accident in the Bronx that sent 3 generations of a single family plummeting to their death. The American Automobile Association has gone public with their complaint that the section of the Bronx River Parkway where the decedents’ vehicle was driving on before it careened off the roadway and onto the Bronx Zoo property below is not safe for highway driving.
Specifically, the group has alleged that the lanes are far too narrow for that type of roadway, which contains steep hills and very tight turns, and that the guardrails present on that section of the parkway are inadequate. Furthermore, there is no breakdown lane which may have prevented the tragic accident from ever occurring.
This wreck was the deadliest one in new York since a tour bus returning from a Connecticut casino in March of 2011 slammed into a pole which essentially tore the bus in half, killing four passengers in the process. On this particular stretch of highway in the Bronx, a Honda Pilot flew off the same roadway less than a year ago, although no individuals were killed in that accident
