Multiple Car Accident in Brooklyn Sends Seven to Hospital

Seven motorists were injured in a multi-car crash on the Brooklyn Bridge the week before last.

FDNY crews arrived and quickly rushed the injured to nearby Methodist and Bellevue Hospitals.

A gruesome pedestrian accident in Manhattan nearly cost a woman her life early this month.

Underground Construction Accident Sends Worker to the Hospital

A construction accident in Manhattan sent one worker to the hospital after a fall late last month. The unidentified 60-year old man fell from a ladder that was part of a complex series of scaffolding in the subway system beneath Second Avenue and East 69th Street. Rescue workers called the maze of ladders and metal work a "complicated system" erected below street level and had difficulty getting the injured man to safety.

New York Man Critically Injured in Bus Accident

A young man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after surviving a shocking bus accident earlier this month. The 34-year old man was simply walking down the sidewalk along Main Street in Orange New Jersey when a 77-year old bus driver in charge of a Coach Commuter bus appeared to lose control of his vehicle. Eyewitnesses report seeing the man struggle with the steering wheel, trying in vain to stop the bus from jumping the curb. The massive vehicle first smashed into a Nissan Altima then jumped the curb and crossed the sidewalk before smashing through the facade of a busy Bank of America location.

Near-Fatal New York City Crane Accident Was Likely Caused by Faulty Rigging

The near-fatal crane accident in New York City last month was likely caused by faulty rigging. The intensive investigation into this accident along a busy street in Manhattan revealed that one of the lift straps was likely cut by the edge of the air conditioning equipment being lifted on the high-rise. The 13-ton unit was able to exert enough pressure on one single point in the lift strap to act like a knife and slice cleanly through it.
