Most drivers understand that they need to be attentive and focused when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle, and most drivers will take the necessary steps to do so. However, few if any people could ever prepare for a medical episode, and unfortunately that’s what happened late last week just prior to a Bronx car accident that injured 12 people. Police are continuing to look closely into the situation and at this point it’s not believed that there will be any arrests made.
According to the authorities, this Bronx car accident occurred last Thursday night when an unidentified man was driving his Ford SUV on Jerome Avenue. As he neared the intersection with East Gun Hill Road, he reportedly suffered some sort of seizure and crashed into a parked car. The parked car was sent careening into a shoe store behind it, and a total of 12 people were injured before all of the vehicles involved and debris that was sent flying came to rest. None of the names of those involved were released.
