Bronx, NY – Police are investigating a fatal crash near the intersection of Bruckner Boulevard and White Plains Road in the Soundview section of the Bronx, New York about 4:40 a.m. of May 20.
The 25-year-old male motorcyclist was apparently rear-ended by a Toyota Corolla driven by a 43-year-old woman. The rider was overthrown from the bike and was dragged underneath the car to death before the vehicle went into a full stop.
Paramedics rushed the victim to Jacobi Medical Center. Despite life-saving measures, he still lost his life. The car operator remained at the scene for investigation.
Motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause fatal injuries as opposed to car accidents due to the minimal amount of protection it provides the driver. If you or a family member have been injured due to the negligence or recklessness of another driver, it is critical that you reach out to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
