12 Injured When Truck, Car & City Bus Collide in Brooklyn

12 occupants of a city bus were injured as a result of a truck running a red light and hitting a passenger vehicle, which then forced the bus to swerve and hit a building in Brooklyn, according to investigators. The three-car pileup took place this past Tuesday at Ocean Avenue and Avenue J in Midwood just before 10am.

NYPD interviewed witnesses to the accident, and they identified the truck that ran the red light as belonging to the Jewish Association Servicing the Aging. After the impact, the truck flipped on its side.

Fortunately, no pedestrians were harmed in this accident. Most of the victims were taken to various hospitals by ambulance. Police said there were no sever injuries but many of the involved passengers sustained minor injuries requiring emergency room medical treatment.

In cases involving multiple drivers of three or more vehicles, the liability of the operators/drivers of the cars is essential in establishing which parties were primarily and secondarily responsible for causing the accident. Often, each driver will have a conflicting version of the accident and will rarely admit any wrongdoing. That is why prompt investigations by law firms such as The Law Firm of Steven I. Fried are so vital.

Witnesses to the accident, who are likely unbiased must be located and interviewed so that their testimony is preserved for later use in potential litigation. Often, accident reconstruction will need to be carried out by an expert. That expert, by examining the accident scene, and reviewing accident reports and statements can reach conclusions as to the respective negligence of the involved drivers in causing the accident.

If you or a loved on have been involved in a multi-party car accident, call The Law Firm of Steven I. Fried to review your legal rights. Do not hesitate to contact us as a consultation is free.
