Pedestrian accident leads to arrest in NYC

If you're walking in New York City, you probably feel pretty safe most of the time. Many areas are heavily patrolled by police, and traffic tends to be slow enough to prevent many fatalities from taking place due to car-pedestrian accidents, at least in the city limits. Sadly, on 61-year-old man was struck and killed recently in an accident that allegedly involved alcohol in Elmont, New York. The driver who struck him was allegedly from the city.

A man from Queens is now facing charges related to the death of a pedestrian, according to news from Dec. 29. It is believed that the man was driving at the intersection of Cerenzia Boulevard and Elmont Road when he struck a 61-year-old man around 3:30 in the afternoon and killed him. The man was taken to the local hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Now, authorities who have investigated the pedestrian accident claim that the driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Because of this, he has been arrested, according to the report, and he now faces charges of driving while intoxicated and vehicular manslaughter.

This sad case has left one man dead and another's life in the hands of the authorities. If you've lost a loved one due to a pedestrian-car accident, you may also be interesting in knowing what you can do to recoup funeral costs and fees that you've had the burden of paying due to the accident. You may want to speak with an attorney about the fatal pedestrian accident to learn about your rights and ways to seek compensation and justice for your loved one.
