Williamsburg Bridge Accident Kills 1 and Injures Another


Posted on Mar 16, 2011

A three-vehicle accident took the life of a 27-year-old driver and injured a 32-year-old driver on Monday February 21, 2011. The crash occurred on the Williamsburg Bridge at approximately 11:15 p.m.

The 27-year-old victim was driving a Honda Civic that stalled near the Brooklyn - Queens Expressway split on the Brooklyn-bound side of the span. The victim got out of his car and was standing in front of it when a taxi cab hit the car from behind and the Civic hit the driver. The driver was allegedly killed by the impact of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

After the cab hit the Civic, the cab was rear ended by a Ford Econoline van. The cab driver was injured and taken to Bellevue Hospital with what are believed to be non life threatening injuries. The driver of the van was not reported to be injured in the crash.

Police do not intend to charge either driver in this accident.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the 27-year-old who was killed in this New York City car crash, and we wish the cab driver a speedy and complete recovery.
