The saddened father of a teen killed in NYC joyride on April 15 is looking for answers about what happened to his daughter. Ramon Cora Sr. was rushed to New York from his home near Scranton, Pa. when he discovered that his teenage daughter Christina was dead.

The eighteen-year-old Christina Cora was living in a homeless shelter on 10th Ave. near the Lincoln Tunnel in Manhattan. She was killed on Thursday night, April 15, in a horrific crash when nineteen-year-old driver Stephanie Jaramillo lost control of her Toyota Corolla on the Alexander Hamilton Bridge in Washington Heights. 

Cora, who was in the back seat, was partially ejected from the car when it flipped over. The girl was declared dead at the scene.

The nineteen-year-old driver is now facing charges of manslaughter. Her blood alcohol content showed 0.19 which is twice above the legal limit, said Manhattan prosecutors. 

The father of the teen killed in NYC joyride now wants to know how the accident happened. According to news reports, the man had begged his daughter to leave New York and live with him in Pennsylvania. 

Drunk drivers who cause accidents are facing harsh penalties; in case a person dies in such an accident caused by a drunk driver, they will face charges such as manslaughter. Driving under the influence is illegal in New York, and even if an accident has no injured or dead people, a drunk driver will still be arrested.

If you or your loved one were injured in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to a compensation claim. Losing a loved one in such an accident can be devastating, but you should give your best to remain calm and contact a New York car accident attorney.

  • My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic job as our attorney. We could not have been more pleased with the work you and your team has done on this case. This past four years or so has been such a roller coaster for our family. We are very pleased and grateful with the result. We have made a good choice by choosing you. Thank you.


  • 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!


  • 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.
