Accident in Lincoln Tunnel During Rush Hour
The Lincoln Tunnel that connects New York to New Jersey beneath the Hudson River is one of the busiest places in the country during rush hour. However, this morning's commute was even longer after three buses and a motorcycle crashed on the New Jersey side of the tunnel.
According to reports, the motorcyclist was seriously injured in the accident. Twenty-eight other people were treated for minor or non-life threatening injuries, but 18 of them were taken to the hospital for treatment.
According to the Port Authority, a typical morning rush hour sees 1700 buses carrying 62,000 people into New York City. The accident this morning left just two lanes open for city-bound traffic, which delayed commuters by at least two hours.
Bus accidents injure and kill people because of their size, but also because passengers do not wear safety belts. Motorcycle accidents injure and kill people also because of their size, as well as the lack of protection surrounding the rider.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury attorney in your area.
