Yet Another Crash in the “Bermuda Triangle” of Bronx River Parkway


Many local residents believe that the southbound section of the Bronx River Parkway is “cursed,” and it has gained the nickname “The Bermuda Triangle” of the Bronx. A recent accident only strengthens its infamous reputation. If an accident on the Bronx River Parkway has harmed you or someone you loved, you might be attempting to pay for medical bills and missed wages. Although the authorities seem powerless – or unwilling – to stop crashes in this road section, you can take decisive action with help from a New York personal injury lawyer.

Woman Dies on Bronx River Parkway 

In April of 2024, it was reported that the “Bermuda Triangle” of the Bronx River Parkway had claimed another life. A woman died after crashing and flipping her Jeep, while her passenger was left in critical condition. As the vehicle flipped several times, the female driver was ejected from the vehicle and thrown onto the ground.

The accident occurred on the exact same stretch of road that killed numerous victims back in 2012. All of the deceased victims were members of the same family. This area has also seen numerous fatal crashes dating back to at least the mid-80s, earning it the nickname “Bermuda Triangle” of the Bronx River Parkway.

Can I Sue the City After a Bronx River Parkway Crash? 

In the past, injured plaintiffs and survivors of deceased victims have sued the state and city for crashes on the Bronx River Parkway. These plaintiffs argued that the city should have made safety improvements after becoming aware of safety issues on the parkway. The arguments proved successful in court, and some plaintiffs have received millions of dollars in awards.

Since these famous lawsuits, the city has made a few structural changes to the parkway – including the installation of a simple barrier system. However, these improvements only cost the city a few million dollars – and many critics say that the area is still unsafe. This latest accident suggests that the hazards have not been fully addressed – and it raises the possibility of future lawsuits against the city. Some say that the city should add a new lane to the parkway. However, the cost of this safety improvement would be high. Perhaps too high to justify saving lives – at least in the eyes of city planners.

Key Takeaways 

  • The New York Post calls the Bronx River Parkway “the deadliest road in the city”
  • The City has paid millions in injury awards for “failing to act” after fatal accidents
  • Accidents have continued even after the City’s safety improvements
