WASHINGTON HEIGHTS – An early Sunday morning car accident in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan left two people critically injured. Authorities stated that two cars collided at 7:55 a.m., at Broadway and West 160th Street.

Two people are in critical condition after a car accident early Sunday morning in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan.

One of the vehicles, for unknown reason, then crashed into a 100-foot long scaffolding, leaving it partially collapsed. A woman passenger in the back seat survived and was immediately delivered to an area hospital. Medical authorities confirmed that her condition is critical.

Three victims were transported to Harlem Hospital – one was critically injured while the other two had only two minor injuries. Emergency crews are currently working to stabilize the scaffolding.
The police is in the process of making their investigation so no identities of the fatalities and injured are given to the media. They are also trying to work out charges that are to be filed for person/s responsible for the crash.

Car accidents are common occurrences, not only in big cities but even along the country side. Less than a week ago, two people are dead and a third is seriously injured following an accident in North Bellmore on Tuesday morning. A total of three persons were involved in the incident.

The accident occurred shortly after 11:00 o’clock in the morning at Newbridge Road and Camp Avenue. The incident involved two vehicles – where a car and a garbage truck collided. The driver of the car and his front seat passenger were both killed in the crash, officials said.

The other victim was taken to Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital. Car Accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering in addition to economic damages.
