When you or someone you know was a pedestrian victim in a truck accident, speak to a practiced Brooklyn injury attorne”One day around the middle of March this year, a teenager was badly hurt in a truck accident in the Bronx area. The U-Haul truck crossed an intersection amid a yellow light and hit the 17-year-old boy, who was on his way to school that morning. The impact of the crash sent the boy flying about 10 feet from the spot where it happened and left him critically injured.
Later on, police discovered that the driver of the truck, Efrain Rodriguez, stole the vehicle and was high on methadone at the time of the accident. Past records show that Rodriguez had at least 16 previous suspensions on his license. He also caused significant property damage on the way to the street where it happened and after the crash with the boy, which was followed by the truck’s collision with a parked car and the two vehicles’ crash into the adjacent salon.
