Authorities say that the crash occurred at about 5:30 a.m. on May 12, when the MTA utility vehicle crashed into a Pepsi delivery truck parked in the westbound bus lane of West 42nd Street between Sixth Avenue and Broadway. FDNY reports that two people were taken to a local hospital, though it is not known how serious their injuries were or what condition they are currently in. The Pepsi truck driver was not injured.
The MTA has suspended the driver involved in the crash, whom they say has been charged by police. An investigation is pending.
Filing a Lawsuit Against the MTA
When an MTA employee causes an injury, they’re not the only one responsible for their negligence — in many cases, the MTA as an organization could be held liable as well. The MTA’s negligence can take many forms, including:
- Driver error
- Failure to maintain equipment
- Failure to properly train employees
