Deadly auto accidents in Queens and the Bronx

August 30, 2016 was a deadly night in Queens and the Bronx.  A tragic collision occurred on the Long Island Expressway in Queens.  According to the New York Post, the multiple fatality and multiple vehicle collision may have been caused by drag racing.  See article here.  Meanwhile, in the Bronx, a pedestrian was killed after being struck by two vehicles while crossing Bronxdale Avenue at the intersection of Bronxdale Avenue and Barnes Avenue.  The first of the two vehicles to strike the pedestrian fled the scene.  See article here.  Unfortunately, all too often in collisions like this there is inadequate insurance to compensate the injured victims and the families of the decedents.  In New York State, the minimum insurance required is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident.  If you own an automobile check with your insurance carrier to find out about Supplemental Uninsured Motorist coverage to protect your interests in the event you are in a collision with a vehicle that has inadequate coverage.
