New York car accidents: Mom killed, boy injured at bus stop

While most people in New York know of the risk they take when they use roadways -- either in a commercial or private vehicle -- most feel relatively safe while standing on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, a recent crash may have some people questioning whether they too may be involved in car accidents while waiting for the bus. A young boy was seriously injured in the accident while his mother was killed.

The incident happened late one evening on a day in June. According to reports, the two victims were standing at a bus stop near their home. Police say that a 21-year-old driver attempted a left turn at an intersection. Though that driver had a green light, police say so did an oncoming vehicle with 61-year-old driver.

The ensuing collision caused one of the vehicles to jump a curb and careen into the bus stop. Though the 6-year-old's grandmother was able to push him out of the way, he still suffered serious injuries, including an injury to his head. His mother passed away after being transported to the hospital. No arrests have been made, but the incident remains under investigation.

Unfortunately, now a family is facing the unthinkable while a young child must come to terms with the unexpected death of his mother. Often, the costs associated with such a loss can create a great deal of stress for surviving family members. As a result, many victims of car accidents in New York -- including family members in the event of a fatality -- choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the parties deemed responsible. An attorney with experience with such cases can help them understand their legal options.
