Driver Killed After Bronx River Parkway Tree Crash

Driver Killed After Bronx River Parkway Tree Crash
Calendar icon November 22, 2020

The driver of a minivan died in a Bronx River Parkway tree crash after he lost control of the vehicle on the morning of November 15. When the driver lost control over their vehicle, the van went off the road and hit a tree in Yonkers about a mile north of the Bronx’s E. 233rd St. exit. The crash happened approximately at 7 a.m. The driver was going towards the Bronx when the accident occurred.

According to Westchester police, the first responders pulled the driver out of the vehicle, but he was already dead. Police are investigating the Bronx River Parkway tree crash to determine what caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

No person ever expects an accident, but it can happen to anyone. You can be a careful and dedicated driver who follows the road rules and still end in a crash. Although most accidents happen because of speeding and drunk driving, other factors can add to the crash. Sometimes factors that contribute to accidents can be a phone distraction, health issues, road debris, faulty vehicle parts, or weather condition.

If you ever find yourself in an accident, no matter if you’re the driver or not, make sure that you are well. If you can, get out of the vehicle, and seek medical help immediately. You don’t have to have visible injuries to get a medical exam. It’s important to report the crash to the police, even if it’s just a minor thing.

This would help you in the further process when seeking your compensation claim. It’s best if you file the claim with a skilled car accident attorney who knows this process perfectly. The insurance company will try to offer a lower settlement (they may even deny it). This is why you need a good lawyer by your side.

Free Case Review




  • I highly recommend Cellino Law to anyone involved in a car crash. I worked with Michael Lovecchio, and had a wonderful experience given the circumstances. He was very attentive, and got the best possible outcome I could have wanted.


  • Cellino Law is an amazing firm with a great team. I worked with Greg Pajak and his assistant, Tracey Falconer. I cannot express enough how dedicated they are. The personal attention I received was excellent; they were always available to help with questions and concerns and put me at ease in the unknown territory I found myself in. I highly recommend them to anyone needing representation. A huge thank you to them for all they accomplished for me!


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe

  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.


  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.


  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.
