New York newlywed killed in pedestrian accident

For many people in New York, December is an almost-magical time of year filled with family and friends. Many people are planning holiday parties and deciding what gifts to purchase for loved ones. Unfortunately, one man is now planning a funeral after his young bride was killed in a pedestrian accident.

The incident happened one evening on a day in December. According to reports, the 28-year-old victim, who had only been married approximately a month before she was killed, was attempting to cross the street at a crosswalk after working late. Unfortunately, she was allegedly struck by the rear of a tour bus that was turning.

The woman was transported to the hospital, but she ultimately passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the collision. A passenger on the bus says that the driver, a 50-year-old man, was in a rush because the bus had gotten a late start. Though the accident remains under investigation, the driver has since been charged with failure to use due care and failure to yield to a pedestrian.

The months that follow a marriage are supposed to be filled with happiness and hope for the future. Unfortunately, a man is now mourning the untimely death of his wife, potentially due to a pedestrian accident that could have been easily prevented. Though it will likely do little to help assuage the grief stemming from his loss, filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the party or parties deemed responsible for the New York accident -- potentially including both the driver and his employer -- could result in a financial award if negligence can be proved.
