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.

  • I am writing to let you know what an outstanding job George Gridelli did for me in my personal injury lawsuit. His professionalism and expertise were evident at our first metting and he and his paralegal Diane D'Andrea took care of me as if I was a friend and not merely a client. They both went above and beyond for me in so many ways that it would be too numerous to list and I am grateful to have had such an exemplary team represent me. When working with George and watching him in court he personified to me what a lawyer is supposed to be - an honest, extremely compentent man who helped guide me through the legal system. I could not have obtained better representation anywhere else at any price. To me that says a lot abut you and your firm's integrity. Thank you again for representing me and for having such stellar individuals working for you! I will continue to recommend your firm.
