New York auto accident Lawyer Adnan Munawar today released a statement commenting on a truck accident in East Harlem that claimed the life of a pedestrian.
According to a CBS New York Report (1 Dead, 4 Injured After Box Truck, Taxi Collide In East Harlem, CBS New York, November 11, 2013), a pedestrian was killed and four others were injured when a box truck and a taxi collided near Park Avenue in Harlem.
According to the report, the pedestrian, a 65 year old woman, had been standing with her husband on a corner intersection when the accident occurred. According to the report, the force of the collision propelled the truck onto the curb, where it struck the pedestrian, killing her.

“Our hearts go out to the families involved in this hour of great loss,” said Munawar. “It is unclear what specific conditions caused this crash, but the City of New York should take extra measures for the safety of pedestrians.”
In light of the incident, Munawar urged vigilance on the part of both motorists and pedestrians alike.
“Tragedies like this are all too common in our city,” said Munawar. “That is why it is important to be aware of your surroundings whether you are behind the wheel or on foot.
