Harlem, N.Y. (July 8, 2019) - A pedestrian who walked with a cane was struck and killed over the weekend by a taxi cab, according to authorities. The fatal New York pedestrian accident occurred Sunday, around 1:00 p.m. at the corner of Fredrick Douglass Boulevard and West 128th Street.

As the man was in the street, a taxi cab that was being driven by a 71-year-old hit him, causing him to be thrown into the air. The cab then struck a second cab, injuring the 27-year-old driver of that vehicle and the passenger inside.

Emergency responders checked the pedestrian at the scene but declared him deceased, saying he died on impact. The driver and passenger of the second cab were taken to Harlem Hospital for their injuries. The driver of the first cab stayed at the scene and is cooperating with police. The investigation is ongoing.

Deadly Pedestrian Accidents and the Elderly

When pedestrian accidents occur, it's important to understand who the pedestrian involved in the accident actually is. When the pedestrian is considered elderly, it's important that the pedestrian be taken for medical care as soon as possible, as those who are at an advanced age can suffer more significant injuries and complications compared to those who are younger. When pedestrians are injured by vehicles, it's important they get the help they need both medically and legally to ensure they recover from their accident. At the Law Offices of Robert A. Solomon of Metro Law, our team of lawyers know what you need after you are hurt by a vehicle, and we will help fight to get you the compensation you need to pay for your injuries.
