Last week marked the conclusion of a tragic wrongful death case that began in 2006.
Our clients in this case were the parents of an 8 year old girl who tragically died in a preventable school bus accident.
“In the tragedy that garnered media attention 10 years ago, Amber Sadiq was an 8-year-old schoolgirl in the path of a runaway bus. The unattended yellow school bus had been parked on Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights but was broken into through the emergency exit doors, which in accordance with the law were kept unlocked. A troubled 8-year-old intruder, playing bus driver, then managed to release the emergency brake. He fled but the heavy bus was on a grade, and within a short distance had rolled to where the girl had just crossed the street while holding hands with her brother. The boy escaped injury, but his sister was pinned under a wheel and died.” – The Brooklyn Eagle
