Unlicensed Truck Driver Hits, Kills Queens Boy In Woodside

Noshat Nahian, 8, was walking to school with his sister in Woodside when they tried to cross the busy intersection at Northern Blvd. and 61st Street. Tragically, Noshat was hit by a tractor trailer and died.

While the family struggles with grieving - the stress of Noshat's death induced his father into having a nonfatal heart attack - friends and family members are trying to comprehend how this pedestrian accident could have happened.

There are PS 152 crossing guards assigned to the opposite side of the street from where Noshat was killed, but not where he was crossing with his sister. Woodside parents do not understand why there aren't more assigned crossing guards.

Blame is also casted upon the truck driver involved; Mauricio Osorio-Palominos, 51, was driving without a valid license. Osorio-Palominos was charged and arraigned. He is employed by Road Techs, a New Jersey business.

Too many Queens children are hit by trucks and cars. Mayor Bloomberg and his officials have made traffic safety improvements, but there are still glaring needs. You can add the intersection of Northern and 61st in Woodside to the top of that list.

If you need a NYC pedestrian accident attorney's help to explore your legal rights and pursue money damages, ensure you contact a lawyer experienced in handling pedestrian collisions.
