A school safety agent in the Bronx has been hospitalized with severe head trauma and other injuries after three separate vehicles ran him over. He was trying to cross at East Tremont and Tan Place when he was first hit.
A witness behind the first driver stopped his vehicle when he heard the first driver scream. At first he thought he might have hit the car in front of him, but there was no damage. He heard two more thumps as he stopped to interrogate the driver. The driver admitted that he hit the safety officer, but then two other vehicles ran the officer over without stopping.
The witness called 911 and redirected traffic. According to the witness, the first car that hit the driver had double-parked next to him after he struck the pedestrian, causing the other drivers to get angry and go around, hitting the fallen officer. They may not have even realized they ran over someone.
No one has been arrested in this accident as of yet.
