Seven Injured in New York Overpass Bus Crash

Seven Injured in New York Overpass Bus Crash
Calendar icon January 22, 2021

At least seven people were injured in a New York overpass bus crash. The driver of the bus that crashed through an overpass barrier in the Bronx area, was also among those injured. 

According to the New York Police Department, the tandem bus was dangling over the road below. The crash happened around midnight on January 15, on the westbound Cross Bronx Expressway and University Avenue, according to the NYPD. The injured people were taken to nearby hospitals.

FDNY Deputy Chief Pail Hopper said that the bus fell about 50 feet onto the access road.

So far the reasons for the accident aren’t clear and whether it was caused by a driver’s error or mechanical problems. No one was arrested so far.

After the New York overpass bus crash, the streets near the site were closed and the traffic was delayed. 

Such accidents are very serious and various factors could contribute such as faulty vehicle parts, medical conditions, road hazards, and so on.

If you were involved in an accident, make sure to get medical help as soon as possible. Even if the accident was serious and there aren’t visible injuries, get a medical examination.

This is important because some injuries may develop after a couple of days. 

When filing a compensation claim, the insurance company would not be eager to pay a settlement if you don’t have medical records that show that you got your injuries in the accident.

Hiring an attorney in such a case is important as well. Even though you can do this on your own, a skilled attorney will guide you and advise you and if it’s necessary they will negotiate until the insurance company offers you a suitable settlement.

Free Case Review




  • My experience during the time of negotiations was extremely positive. Josh Sandberg handled my lawsuit with the utmost integrity. He returned all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all my questions. Josh made things less stressful. I would highly recommend Josh and the entire staff at Cellino Law.


  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.


  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • Mark Kochanowicz is from far the best attorney you can have. Mark treats you like a friend more than a client. He truly cares and go the extra mile for you and your case, contacts you to update you in regards to your case and keep you informed at all times. Mark represented me twice and settled my cases for way more than I expected. I highly recommend Mark Kochanowicz because he is just the best on what he does!!! Thank you Mark!!!!


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!
