New York City Police Investigating Brooklyn Scooter Accident By The Intersection of Linden Boulevard and Thomas Boyland Street

Scooter Rider Killed In Brooklyn Car Accident

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (February 17, 2024) – A scooter rider has tragically died in a Brownsville, Brooklyn car accident by the intersection of Linden Boulevard and Thomas Boyland Street.

New York City police are saying that the collision took place around 1:40 a.m. on Monday. A scooter rider was attempting to cross the roadway when they were hit by a vehicle.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim. Sadly, they later died due to their injuries.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Brooklyn Car Accidents

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid pedestrians and scooter riders. Pursuant to New York Vehicle & Traffic Law § 1180, no person is allowed to operate a motor vehicle faster than what would be prudent or safe given the prevailing conditions of the roadway. Victims of scooter accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

It can be hard to know what to do after any car accident. To make matters worse, drivers will do everything that they can to deny liability if they injure someone. The family of any person that died in a scooter accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
