Girl, 3, Dies After Being Hit By SUV In Queens Intersection

A child died in a Queens pedestrian collision on Sunday, the second NYC child-pedestrian death in a span of 10 days. As with most New York City pedestrian accidents, the authorities haven't disclosed many details.

A 3-year-old girl was crossing Main Street in Flushing with her grandmother when a Nissan SUV hit her and ran her over. The child died in an ambulance while en route to the hospital.

According to Streetsblog, the victim was the seventh child fatality aged 7 or under in New York City during 2013.

Without knowing more about the Flushing accident, it's hard to know who acted negligently. In NYC, drivers involved in fatal pedestrian collisions are rarely charged unless they were intoxicated or driving with extreme recklessness. That doesn't mean that victims of negligence cannot hold a wrongdoer responsible, however.

A personal injury suit or wrongful death claim can help a family recover money damages while holding the negligent parties responsible. To learn more, speak with an experienced New York pedestrian injury lawyer.
