A Harlem boy was fatally struck by a livery cab on Wednesday after school. No charges have been filed as of yet, as it has not been determined whether the driver failed to yield the right of way while the boy crossed the street. A school crossing guard claimed that the boy ran across the street while the car had the green light. As part of Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero policy, drivers involved in incidents where failure to yield the right of way results in the death or injury of pedestrians can face criminal charges.
Our condolences go out to the boy’s family during this difficult time.
