It is imperative that this year, we all take serious precautions on Halloween as we should every day of the year. Last yearâ€™s car-pedestrian crash in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx highlights faced by car drivers and trick-or-treaters. A truck driver, who was driving a sedan at the time of the accident, twice rear-ended a car before jumping the curb, killing a young girl, her grandfather and himself. Others at the scene were injured.
The NYPD did not find any alcohol or drugs in the manâ€™s system. Instead, according to ABC News and the NYPD, the driver may have had a seizure or other medical incident that impaired his ability to drive before and during the accident. Oftentimes, when there is an accident at night on Halloween or another holiday, like New Yearâ€™s Eve, the cause is driving while under the influence of alcohol (DUI/DWI).
