Kelly: COP IN DEADLY CRASH TOTALLY WASTED

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

The headlines out of the Daily News today, June 3, 2010, says it all.

Officer Hoyoung Kim was off duty last month and drunk when he crashed his car in the Bronx.  The result, he killed himself a friend on the New York Police Department and injred four women. 

His blood alcohol level was 0.16, double the legal limit in New York of 0.08.  His fellow colleague who also lost his life, Office Edwin Paulino was also wasted with a blood-alcohol level of 0.21.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly informed reporters of the toxicology reports.  When asked by reporters if he was surprised the Commissioner replied “no comment.” 

The crash occurred on May 16, 2010 and the mother, Sabina Ramirez, 47, of two sisters Iris, 27, and Jazmin, 23, critically hurt in the crash on the Bronx River Parkway is beside herself.  They were taken to Jacobi Medical Center where they remain in critical condition.

Iris suffered a broken pelvis, two fractured legs and a spinal cord injury.  The other victims, Shirley Torres, 26 and Melina Ramirez, 27, also remain hospitalized in Jacobi Medical Center.

There seems to be no end to the negligence and recklessness of drunk drivers in the Bronx.  I expect more from a New York Police Officer and they must understand that they are held to a higher duty given their special place in our society as the perveyors of law and order.  It is a shame that a few bad apples have to ruin the reputation of the whole department.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident involving a drunk driver or any type of accident please call the car accident lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.
