NEW YORK, NY- Monday morning the nydailynews.com reported that a string of car accidents across Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens led to one fatality and 5 injuries.

The first accident occurred in Queens at 3:30 a.m. when Joseph Debrosse, 56, lost control of his 2013 Hyundai while driving on Woodhaven Blvd. and hit a pole. When Emergency Medical Services arrived at the scene, they found Debrosse unresponsive. Police stated that the driver had suffered bodily trauma in the collision and was declared dead after being taken to Elmhurst General Hospital.

Four individuals suffered injuries in the Bronx a little before 12 p.m. as the result of a multi-vehicle collision. The crash occurred at Morris Park Avenue in Morris Park near Bronxdale Avenue.

All of the injured people were transported to Jacobi Medical Center. Three of the victims are said to have serious, life-threatening injuries. An SUV at the scene showed signs of serious damage. Both of the vehicle’s passenger doors were no longer attached to the car.

Also around 12 p.m., an 89-year-old man swerved when he and another driver were both driving towards the same parking lot. The driver hit a pedestrian, crushing the man’s leg under the vehicle. Bystanders, including Frank Gassoso, 56, were able to lift the vehicle off of the injured pedestrian. The victim, a 6o-year-old man, is reported to have suffered a broken leg. He was treated at Lutheran Medical Center. Eric Bokman, 29, also witnessed the accident and stated that the victim likely suffered broken fingers as well, and said he saw bones protruding from the man’s hand.

Over 200 people are killed in traffic-related accidents in New York City every year. The majority of people killed are pedestrians.

Excellent law firm. I never had to leave the house. The researchers went to both the hospital and my own home to collect all the required information and followed up on the entire process. Don't make a bad decision by choosing this firm. The solution was convenient and quite fast compared to other nearby experiences. Linda and Jorge were very attentive to the entire process and were very concerned about a prompt resolution. Many thanks to your firm and your excellent secretaries and legal representatives Linda and Jorge from the Parker Waichman LLP firm. Congratulations on your efficient service.
