BROOKLYN: School Bus Crash Injures School Girl in Crown Heights


BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (Febraury 24, 2017) – An 11-year-old girl was seriously injured after a school bus driver making a turn ran her over.

The schoo bus driver hit the girl at Nostrand Avenue and St. John’s Place. Police are saying that the child was in the crosswalk at the time of the accident.

One witness says that the bus driver was turning the corner in a manner that was unsafe. Her book bag was hit by the bus and then she was run over after being knocked down.

The girl was transported via ambulance to the hospital where she was treated for her head injuries.

The police have not yet indicated if they are going to press charges against the driver of the school bus.

The RMFW Law Firm extends its heartfelt sympathies to the girl that was injured and her family. We encourage any other witnesses to the accident to come forward for the sake of all of those that were affected.

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
