Out-Of-Control Car Crashes Into Dunkin Donuts, 4 Injured
01/14/2013 // New York, NY, USA // New York Injury Accident Lawyer // Jonathan C. Reiter // (press release)
An out-of-control car careened into a Dunkin Donuts in Brooklyn, smashing through the front window, and colliding with four customers, causing serious injuries to at least three of them. This accident occurred last night, January 8, 2013, at the Dunkin Donuts located at 1427 Linden Blvd. in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. The car was observed crossing the intersection of Linden Blvd. and Rockaway Blvd. just before losing control and smashing into the Dunkin Donuts. All four victims were removed from the scene by emergency medical technicians and transported via ambulance to Brookdale Hospital. Three out of the four, who remain unidentified, were listed in serious condition, according to police sources. A police investigation is pending following this accident, but no charges were brought against the driver of the vehicle.
According to Brooklyn personal injury attorney, Jonathan C. Reiter, who has handled many motor vehicle accidents, this type of accident wherein only one vehicle is involved, there arise specific issues as follows: “In a one car accident, the investigation of this accident, which is mandated by law in every fatal or serious accident occurring in the State of New York, will look at factors such as the car’s safety equipment, such as steering and brakes, as well as the car’s speed, and weather, lighting and road conditions. If the driver was negligent in his operation of the car, by driving too fast under the circumstances, or by failing to apply the brakes in a timely and appropriate manner, then the driver of the car may be held liable for his negligence. An accident reconstruction expert will most likely be necessary to analyze all of the evidence from the investigation, to determine the cause or causes of the accident, and whether the accident could have been avoided altogether.”
This out-of-control car was capable of destroying people and property in profound and irreversible ways. Four innocent victims of this accident lie in Brookdale Hospital, undergoing life-saving treatment for serious injuries. They may suffer a lifetime of pain and disability as a result of this tragedy. Only time will tell exactly how the negligence of the driver caused such an horrific accident, adds the NY car accident attorney.
