Sometimes tragedy occurs and the details are all laid out in black and white. Sometimes, tragedy occurs and the victim’s or the victim’s families have no idea where to turn, who is at fault, or what to do. The following tragedy could be such a case.
On July 2nd, 42 year old Reginald Brown of Brooklyn was riding his motorcycle in route to a memorial celebration for a friend who’d been killed in a motorcycle accident the year before. Unfortunately, Mr. Brown didn’t make it to the ceremony. While riding his motorcycle westbound on Monroe Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant he collided with an FDNY fire truck at Marcy Avenue. Witnesses on the scene said that the fire truck was flashing its lights and that its sirens were blaring – it is unclear why Mr. Brown was unaware of the fire truck. Following the collision, Mr. Brown was ejected from his bike and landed along the sidewalk. Despite the fact that he was wearing a helmet at the time, he was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Family members and close friends are at a loss. They state that the Reginald Brown was a stickler in abiding by the rules of the road, and was considered a very safe driver.
