YONKERS, N.Y. -- A 33-year-old man was killed after colliding with an sport utility vehicle while riding a motorcycle in Yonkers on Tuesday night, Aug. 5, according to police.

The accident occurred at 11:58 p.m. at the corner of Culver Street and Riverdale Avenue when a 2011 Nissan truck heading east on Culver, driven by a Bronx resident, collided with a 2013 Yamaha scooter driven by a 33-year-old male Yonkers resident.

According to the latest statistics so many people were killed by motor accidents and most of the victims families were not getting nothing from the Insurance Companies either because there is not enough coverage or because the victims were uninsured. Any way, in such cases the victim's families are the one who is suffering. This shows that something is wrong with our system that is why victim's families are not getting enough money to compensate the loss of their loved ones. Here the main point is that at the present system there is no value for human beings in such accidental deaths. There may be some exceptions. Unless the victim's families are not capable to fight against the system , the victim's families are the losers. Hope some lawmakers will look into this loophole and do everything to correct the present legal system.
