(PRWEB) June 25, 2014
A teenager is dead after being fatally struck by a BMW in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NBC News reported. (14-Year-Old Boy Crossing Street Hit, Killed By BMW in Brooklyn: Police, June 2, 2014). Police say that the teenager was taken to the hospital in critical condition after being hit by the car near Hicks and Lorraine streets around 7 a.m. but died shortly thereafter. Witnesses say the impact was so great that it flung the boy over a fence and was so loud that one woman though that two cars had collided. The driver of the BMW and a passenger remained at the scene and no criminality is suspected.
As reported, some people familiar with the site of the accident claim that it is a dangerous corner and that multiple high-speed accidents had happened there. Other residents also called on authorities to take action, stating that this death was one too many.
“For a parent, this is the worst possible news one could receive, and we are deeply saddened by the loss of this young man—our heavy hearts go out to his friends and family,” said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “From what we can gather so far, this appears to be a genuine accident at an intersection that people have known to be dangerous for some time, but no one has done anything to change that. Hopefully this will be the last time someone has to die or be hit by a car before the authorities will take action. This is truly a dark day in Brooklyn.”
“While we wait for the investigation to give a full report on what happened, it is also important to note that anyone who is the victim of a motor vehicle accident has rights, and that they or their loved ones should protect those rights, even if the thought of that is too overwhelming to bear at the moment. I have done this for a long time, and of course, compensation cannot replace the loss of a loved one, but it can alleviate additional financial stresses that come with such a loss.
