When a vehicle attempts to avoid a collision or possible collision, more harm than good may unfold for those involved. For one woman, walking along the streets of New York led to her becoming the victim of a fatal accident. A school bus struck and killed the 50-year-old pedestrian. The accident happened at 6:30 p.m. on a Friday night.
The roadways of New York City can be treacherous for both those in vehicles and pedestrians. Mayor DeBlasio has spearheaded an initiative known as Vision Zero, which is focused on reducing fatal traffic fatalities in the city. A recent car accident in the northern part of Manhattan highlights how dangerous it is to be a pedestrian in the city. One pedestrian lost his life and another was injured.
