Negligent driver enters FDR the wrong way, 4 injured in crash

Another wrong-way accident on one of New York's highways has resulted in several critical injuries and a traffic backup nightmare. It happened on Nov. 13 at about 4 a.m. on the FDR Drive when a Kia sedan entered the highway going the wrong way. The apparently negligent driver, a 33-year-old female, traveled into an exit ramp at East 34th Street and into oncoming traffic, according to the New York Police Department.

Firefighter charged with drunk driving and negligent homicide

When a drunk driver causes personal injury to others in a vehicle accident in New York, he or she will usually be liable for the damages suffered by those injured. Any claim made by an injured party for civil damages is separate and apart from the criminal prosecution of the defendant for drunk driving. However, some of the evidence relating to the criminal prosecution may be admissible in the civil case to establish the defendant's recklessness and as justification for a possible award of punitive damages.

2 elderly die: 1 in pedestrian accident in Brooklyn, 1 in Queens

In New York City, there appears to be a particular problem with elderly pedestrians being struck and killed while crossing the street. The statistics show more elderly are killed in a pedestrian accident as opposed to a younger pedestrians. That may indicate that an older person has a slower reaction time, and perhaps a body that is less elastic and more brittle than a younger person's, making the elderly more prone to pedestrian injury and death than others.

One of the more dangerous predicaments a driver can face is that of breaking down on a fast-paced New York highway. Depending on the circumstances, it may be tough to decide whether it is safer to wait inside the car or outside of it while waiting for rescue assistance. A fatal accident or one causing serious injuries can occur either way.
