A New York City police officer was the intoxicated driver in a deadly car crash that killed two and injured four others, according to a New York Injury Lawyer. He had arrived at a surprise birthday party for a fellow officer at an unspecified time. However, it was known that he had consumed a great deal of alcohol by those at the party including the injured passengers.
The 35 year old officer was driving his 2007 Nissan Altima when he left the party just after 6AM on May 16th,and the accident occurred on the Bronx River Parkway, reported a New York Car Accident Lawyer.
Another New York City police officer who was also in the car that morning was killed as well. The other cop was only 25 and had also been drinking at the party with a blood alcohol level of .21, stated a New York Injury Lawyer. Both officers were in the front seat of the car.
The driver had offered a ride to four other women that he met at the party even though he had a blood alcohol level of .16, which a New York Car Accident Lawyer informed is twice the stateís legal .08 driving limit. Victims included a 27 year old woman, and a 26 year old, both of whom are in critical condition due to the avoidable accident. Two sisters were also critically injured in the automobile accident. The mother of the two sisters displayed anger at the police officers for their reckless actions that placed her daughters
in the hospital with critical injuries such as a spinal cord injury, shattered pelvis and fractured legs.
