“wrecks like this sadly may have been the result of icy road conditions, New York car accident lawyer, Paul Ajlouny said ” — “However cabbies in poor weather conditions still have a responsibility to use caution and not drive too fast and carelessly.  Irresponsible cab drivers can as seen here seriously injure innocent bystanders or even take someone’s life.”
