Another Fatal Pedestrian Accident at NYC "Problem Intersection"

A recent fatal pedestrian accident in Brooklyn highlights the danger of what local residents call a "problem intersection" in Greenpoint. A 32-year old woman was struck by a BMW as she was crossing the street at the intersection of McGuinness Boulevard and Nassau Ave. just before the New Year. Nicole Detweiller, a Brooklyn resident, was then thrown into the path of an oncoming box truck and killed. The truck, travelling in the next lane over, was operated by a driver who shouldn't have even been on the roads.
