Fatal accident leaves 1 dead, driver under suicide watch

A 29-year-old New York man who drove his high-priced Porsche into the rear of a parked bus in Queens is being held in prison under a suicide watch as he awaits a hearing on DWI and vehicular manslaughter charges. After leaving a bar where he admitted to drinking six beers and three shots, he attempted to drive a female passenger to her home. At the scene of the fatal accident, upon seeing that his passenger was dead, he reportedly tried but failed to strangle himself to death with the string from his hoodie, according to police.

Transportation Alternatives is a watchdog group that follows the prosecutorial practices of New York City authorities against reckless and dangerous drivers who cause serious physical injury and death to pedestrians and bicyclists in the city.

For example, the report documents numerous accidents involving the wrongful death or serious injury of children and others that resulted in no charges being brought.

Driver kills 1, injures 11 in Thanksgiving night fatal accident

It is always distressing to see the senseless human tragedy that is caused by a reckless motorist who runs amok for no apparent reason. In those rare occurrences, the motor vehicle may become as dangerous a weapon as a rapid-fire gun. The perpetrator can run up a toll of many persons injured and even killed. That is what happened in a fatal accident that occurred in New York City on Thanksgiving evening.
