Mother, 32, Killed By Drunk Driver While Crossing Bronx Street

A woman was visiting a corner store to pick up some items for her 2-year-old twins when a drunk driver barreled into her Saturday afternoon in the Bronx. The pedestrian collision knocked her unconscious; she died before responders could get her to the hospital. The fatal crash occurred on East Tremont Avenue.

The driver did not have a valid license and was allegedly drunk. He had three passengers in his vehicle, including two children, ages 4 and 10. He will be charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, as well as other crimes.

The 32-year-old victim's family was in disbelief and grief-stricken. How do you tell toddlers that their mother is gone and will never be back?

It is unfair that these children will grow up without their mom because a stranger chose to be irresponsible and reckless. Drunk driving is simply inexcusable in New York City, where public and private sources of transportation are available. It is especially appalling that the drunk driver had child passengers in his own vehicle.

In addition to criminal charges, the at-fault driver is also liable to the family of the deceased woman, should it choose to pursue a wrongful death claim.
