Tractor-Trailer Driver Arrested on DUI after Deadly Hit-And-Run Crash in NYC

An investigation is ongoing in a deadly crash involving a tractor-trailer that struck a 1997 Toyota sedan on the Cross Bronx Expressway early in the morning of March 27. The truck driver fled the scene, but was later apprehended at a rest stop in Ridgefield, New Jersey. Authorities administered a breathalyzer test which confirmed he was legally drunk. He was taken into custody and charged with a commercial driver DUI. Criminal charges against the truck driver are expected in both New York and New Jersey.

The 25-year-old driver of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene; two women in the car with him were taken to the hospital in critical condition. Both are expected to survive.

Even the most cut-and-dry tractor trailer accident case is not always easy to try and can take years to resolve. Lawsuit Financial is dedicated to assisting victims and family members who have been injured or killed in a crash due to no fault of their own. We are a direct funding company providing cash advances for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits nationwide.

Lawsuit funding is a cash advance provided to plaintiffs before a case ultimately resolves and a settlement is received. All that is required for eligibility is a strong case and attorney representation. At Lawsuit Financial, we make the application and funding process hassle-free. Unlike many lawsuit funding companies that work with third party companies to fund cases, we handle every aspect of the funding process in-house. That means a faster review and approval process and lower rates. There are no credit checks, employment verification, monthly payments, or out of pocket expenses. After receiving an application, we contact the plaintiff’s attorney for case documentation. Then, our underwriters will use the information to make a funding decision. Once an application is approved, cash can be available within 24 – 48 hours. The cash advance is paid back only after the case settles. Best of all, if the case is lost, the plaintiff keeps the money advanced, no questions asked.
