(PRWEB) December 26, 2013
Several major car accidents occurred in the tri-state area on Sunday, including a pileup of over two-dozen cars in Yonkers, CBS News reported (Slippery Roads Across Tri-State Area Cause Pileups, December 9, 2013). Authorities alleged that slippery road conditions cause by inclement weather played a significant role in causing so many cars to crash. Police stated that shortly after 11p.m. on Sunday along the Bronx River Parkway, nearly 30 cars were involved in chain-reaction pile up, resulting in about 45 people being taken to the hospital with injuries. Authorities were surprised and relieved to find that no fatalities occurred and that all the injured drivers are expected to recover.
“At this time of year, when snow and ice begin to build up on roads, accidents like these become more common and it is important that drivers exercise even greater caution,” said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “It was incredibly fortunate that there were no reported fatalities in the accidents involving twenty or more cars and thankfully no family members lost a loved one at this time of year. Authorities can only do so much to clear the roads and issue hazard warnings, and people should consider driving only if necessary. If you do have to be on the road, please allow for more time than usual and proceed with extreme diligence--once your car is sliding on snow or ice, there is often nothing you can do to regain control.”
