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.
How Do I Get My Police Report in the Bronx?
Immediately following an arrest or accident in which the police are notified, an officer writes up a report containing all the pertinent information relating to the investigation. Until the case is closed you may only be able to gain access to the public portion of the report and not the entire file. Once the case is no longer ongoing, your attorney will be able to view the full police report and obtain a copy of it for you from your local Bronx police station. You can also go to the local government website to fill out a police report request form that can be submitted either by mail, electronically, or in person depending on what is specified on the government website. There’s a chance that requesting a copy of the file will require you to pay a nominal fee before gaining access to it.
