Car crash leads to arrest, injuries and death

Driving is a task that many people in Brooklyn enjoy until they are well past retirement age. Some older individuals do not drive and use public transportation and car-for-hire services. Many people who use rideshare and taxi services believe they can avoid accidents by not driving. Relying on another individual for transportation may seem convenient and less stressful. But when an accident causes serious or death to passengers, determining liability can become a challenge. 

There are many factors that make recovering from car accidents hard to recover from. Besides the physical and mental anguish of the trauma, the victims often experience financial difficulties. Victims and their loved ones can seek compensation from liable parties to help them overcome the financial challenges they encounter. 

Recently, a 42-year old rideshare worker was arrested for operating a vehicle while driving with a suspended license after being involved in a car crash. She was transporting two older women at the time of the incident. One of her passengers died. The collision took place in Dyker Heights. The worker’s vehicle was T-boned by a 72-year-old woman after she stopped and accelerated through an intersection before crashing into a parked car. 

The passenger who lost her life was 89 years old. Her female companion was 79 years old and suffered minor injuries. The driver who caused the accident stated she did not notice the other vehicle while she was stopped at the intersection. Medical workers arrived at the scene and rushed both passengers to Lutheran Medical Center, where the 89-year old female passenger was not able to survive her injuries.
