NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The New York Post released details released details of a terrifying mini school bus accident in Park Slope that left multiple people injured, including six children. (6 Kids Among Injured in School Bus Crash in Brooklyn: FDNY, January 8, 2016). The mini school bus was traveling North on 4th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn attempting to make a left turn onto First Street when it was broadsided by a Mustang, according to officials. The bus flipped over on its side.
The FDNY and witnesses reported that the children were shaken up and taken to local hospitals, but all are expected to recover. Local residents complained that the intersection is inherently dangerous, stating this was the third accident at the intersection in the last five weeks. Police are investigating the crash and reviewing the video.
"First of all, we must express our gratitude that all six of the injured children will apparently make full recoveries," said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. "This is any parents' worst nightmare, and at least they will not have to suffer the loss of a child. While the investigation will reveal the exact facts as to what happened, this is an unfortunate reminder of why speed laws exist and why drivers need to think beyond themselves when behind the wheel. It is equally important that community activists continue to speak out when certain intersections are inherently dangerous and demand that public officials take action."
"As an additional note, accidents are traumatic, and the law governing them can be extremely confusing. Anyone who is the victim of an accident or who has a loved one in a school bus accident should contact an attorney right away. Especially in cases like these, where there may be multiple parties to hold responsible and sorting out liability may be particularly complicated, it is not something you want to do alone. And remember, consulting with a personal injury attorney is always free, and you only ever pay a fee you're your claims are successful, so virtually anyone can afford quality representation."
