Bus Accident Lawyers Discuss Fatal MTA Bus Accident

Bus Accident lawyer new york

A 7-year-old boy riding a battery-powered motorized scooter was killed after being struck by an MTA bus crash in the Bronx on May 26th, 2018, police say.

The child was struck on East 184th St. and Webster Avenue in Fordham Heights around 3:30 pm.

The child was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses say the reason why the bus driver did not see the boy in time was that the 7-year-old came zooming down the sidewalk, down a hill, and into the street. The sidewalk is behind a building, so it created a blind spot for the bus driver, driving down Webster Avenue.

The MTA bus came to a stop almost a block away from where it struck the boy.

Witnesses say the driver remained on the scene and was questioned by police, but was not taken into custody

It is unclear where the boy’s parents were when the accident happened.

The family is blaming the MTA for the deadly accident and taking legal action, filing a $15.5 million lawsuit.

The MTA has refused to comment.
