Vehicular Mayhem Filled Weekend


This past weekend was filled with a number of accidents involving different vehicles in different incidences. There were at least 4 causalities in separate accidents, 2 separate incidences involving a cyclist that was killed, another involving the passenger of a car that was struck and lastly a pedestrian who was crossing the street.
The driver who mowed down the pedestrian stayed at the scene while the drivers of the other 3 accidents fled the scene.
Saturday night a man who just finished his shift at Fed-Ex was headed home before starting his second shift. He was on his way to his girlfriend’s house when he was struck and killed by an unidentified BMW driver. That same day, a 52 year old woman was struck and killed as she crossed the street in Midtown.
“City statistics show that traffic fatalities are down during Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero initiative, but the last few days suggest a different picture.” According to an article posted by the NY Post, “As of Thursday, there were 85 traffic fatalities in the city — eight fewer than during the same time period in 2015, which Mayor de Blasio said was the safest year on city streets since 1910.”
Despite the fact that there are 8 fewer fatalities this year than last year, 2016 has been plagued with a large number of fatal hit and runs since the year started.
