2006_11_fordfocus.jpgSaturday afternoon, a woman driving a Ford Focus swerved to avoid a bicyclist at Boston Road and 169th Street in the Bronx. But she ended up hitting a Con Ed worker who had been working on an underground feeder cable. Forty year old Yuen Mun was pinned against a building (the picture of the crashed car is pretty grisly) and later died from his injuries. The police classified the incident as an accident, but his family is angry that the 62 year old driver was not charged. His brother-in-law says, "We just want justice and for the truth to come out."

And last night, a 75 year old man was hit by a car at 23rd Street and 4th Avenue in Brooklyn. The car did not stop, and the man is in critical condition at Lutheran Medical.
