Bronx Crash Injures 5
SUV ROLLOVER ON BRUCKNER EXPRESSWAY
An SUV that hit a guardrail on a Bronx parkway, flipped over several times and ejected an 11 year old boy riding in the back of the SUV, critically injuring him.
The woman behind the wheel of the SUV lost control of the vehicle heading east in the center lane of the Bruckner Expressway near Elder Ave. about 11:35 a.m., according to authorities.
The boy was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
The driver, and a 17-year-old girl and 57-year old woman riding in the back were all taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.
Paul Ajlouny, New York personal injury lawyer, weighs in this accident off the Bruckner Expressway. “Car crashes are the leading cause of children / teen injuries and fatalities since young people have the lowest seat belt usage of any age group.
Statistics show that 55 % of young people who have been seriously injured or have died in vehicle collisions, were not wearing a seat belt at the time.” States Mr. Ajlouny.
