3 Dead in Brooklyn Car Crash

Three people were killed in a collision at a Brooklyn intersection in the early morning hours of January 5.

The accident was apparently caused when one of the cars ran a red light.

The crash was so violent that a number of parked vehicles – including an MTA bus – were damaged and protruding into the street for some time.

An individual who has been hurt in a New York intersection accident – or the family of someone killed – might be able to seek monetary compensation by way of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Here is the NBC News 4 report:

Three people are dead after an early morning car wreck in Brooklyn.

Police say an Acura with four occupants ran a red light and collided with a Toyota carrying two people at the intersection of Avenue U and East Fifth Street at about 2 AM Saturday in Gravesend.

Police say two men and a woman died at the scene. Three more people were taken to Lutheran Hospital, including one in critical condition.

Two of the victims were in their 20s. The age of the third was not reported.

It is unclear if drugs or alcohol played any role in the crash. Police say their investigation is ongoing.

Motor vehicle accidents in New York cause the loss of time, property, health and even life.

Every accident is different. The cause of the crash might be driver error, negligence, a defect in the vehicle, or even adverse road and weather conditions.

An experienced New York personal injury attorney can explain your legal options.
