Man Dragged by Car Across Brooklyn Bridge After Rear-End Accident

Posted on Sep 07, 2011

According to New York City Police, a man was dragged along the Brooklyn Bridge by a car and suffered significant injuries last month. The accident occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday August 20, 2011 near Cadman Plaza on the top of the Brooklyn Bridge. Authorities believe that the man was dragged for about 300 yards before he fell off the car and suffered head injuries.

Reports of the accident indicate that 26-year-old Arturo Gomez was driving a Chevrolet Suburban on the Brooklyn bound side of the bridge around 12:45 a.m. when he was rear ended by a black sedan. It is reported that the driver of the sedan initially stopped at the New York City accident scene, but tried to flee the scene when Mr. Gomez got out of his car, started assessing damage and taking pictures of the accident damage. Mr. Gomez, noticing that the driver was trying to leave the scene of the accident, grabbed on to the car, and was dragged across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Mr. Gomez was taken to Bellevue Hospital and was reported to be in stable condition following this New York car accident.

We wish Mr. Gomez a complete and quick recovery from his accident injuries.
