NYFD pulled the victims from the burning wreckage and transported them to Staten Island University Hospital, where they’re reported in stable condition.

Car Collision Ocean Parkway

Two cars collided into each other at the intersection of Ocean Parkway & Quentin Rd.

The car accident happened at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Quentin Road around 7pm in the evening.

One of the vehicles crashed into a traffic light – knocking it down – and then burst into flames.

Car accident attorney Paul Ajlouny weighs in on this accident. “Ocean Parkway has been named one Of 20 Worst Intersections in Brooklyn, New York causing serious injury and fatalities to both pedestrians and motorists.

The borough’s second and third most dangerous roadways are Eastern Parkway and Kings Highway.

Ocean Parkway is like a circus act gone wrong. It’s not surprising that such accidents happen. Drivers more than ever, lack responsibility. There is also very little enforcement which combined is a recipe for such tragic accidents!” says Mr. Ajlouny.

Mr. Ajlouny continues, “If you are involved in a New York car accident, it’s important to hire an attorney that understands the borough’s notoriously dangerous roads.

Expressways like Ocean Parkway, often have tailgating, reckless driving (speeding & improper lane changes), including road rage.

Drivers become impatient in traffic jams, road construction, and detours all of which contribute to traffic accidents. Running red lights is extremely dangerous to drivers and other, motorists. Our firm, everyday, receives calls from accident victims involved in rear end collisions, and accidents from distracted or speeding drivers.” Concludes Mr. Ajlouny.

New York City car accident Lawyer, Paul Ajlouny, hears these tragic stories everyday his phone rings. “Building awareness in New York pedestrians and drivers is definitely the first step to lowering the fatality rate in NYC. ” Paul  strongly suggests.  “In NYC people jaywalk all the time.

Pedestrians ignore traffic laws, running out in the street with a look of defiance. They cross on a yellow, taking chances, when they know they don’t have time to get across the street before the light changes. They walk in the street alongside the cars.”

This year alone an NYPD cruiser on the upper east side seriously injured a pedestrian near Broadway and 78th street. A young girl in Brooklyn leaving church, was killed by a driver fleeing another accident. A 13 year old girl with down syndrome was killed in a hit-and-run-accident. At least 6 people were hurt when a truck crashed into a Bed-stuy Deli.

It’s obvious that many people ignore basic safety rules.  Police officers don’t enforce basic traffic expectations.  NYC commercial cars, trucks,taxis and buses,  break rules and speed limits all the time.  For so long no one has cared, until now!

In 2013 in new York City, close to 300 people were killed in vehicle accidents.
