A thirty-two-year-old woman is fighting for her life after the Lyft she was traveling in was hit by a driver in a souped-up sports car who ran through a red light. The T-bone crash in Brooklyn happened early Monday, November 30.
The passenger was traveling north in the back seat of a hired Honda Accord on Bedford Ave. The car was hit by a Dodge Charger that was speeding west on Dekalb Avenue.
The impact ejected the woman from the vehicle. According to the officials, she was immediately transported to Bellevue Hospital in a critical state.
The surveillance footage shows the Honda slowly entering the intersection when it was crashed from the side by the speeding Charger. The video clearly shows the Charger speeding through a red light, and hitting the backside of the car where the victim was sitting.
The Accord started spinning around from the impact, smashing into a parked white van and climbing the sidewalk.
The driver of the Charger was identified by police sources as twenty-two-year-old Ryan Ortiz from Middletown, New York. He was taken to Kings County Hospital in good condition.
The Charger was decorated with a wrap-around design from the horror movie “Scream”; the vanity plate read “SCR3AM.”

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!
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.
Tim Cellino handled my case beautifully. He is very knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. He kept in touch with me through out my ordeal. Tim also got a settlement for more than I expected. I highly recommend Tim Cellino!
It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.
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
