Family Devastated After Woman Killed, 6-Year-Old Son Hurt in Bus Stop Crash in Brooklyn (https://goo.gl/uup483)

Investigators are still looking into a chain reaction crash in Brooklyn that left a mother dead and her 6-year-old son injured.

Both of them were standing at a bus stop when an SUV traveling west on Seaview hit a sedan, causing the sedan to jump the curb. Although they tried to avoid each other, they were hit and the sedan pinned the mother and young boy against the fence.

The mom has been identified as 33-year-old Shaena Sinclair, who was pronounced dead. Her son, Jayvon, suffered a head injury and is in the hospital in critical but stable condition. The child still does not know that his mother is gone.

If you've been seriously injured in a car accident or lost a loved one in a car accident that was caused by someone else acting negligently or criminally, you could seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim. A personal injury attorney can help you with your claim. To speak with an experienced attorney, call Frekhtman & Associates today at (212) 222-1111.

A Robber Gets Electrocuted on the Train Tracks While Trying to Outrun the Police (https://goo.gl/zFNDzU)

While attempting to evade the police, a would-be robber was electrocuted and killed this weekend after slipping and falling on the third rail of a train track.

He had been trying to steal the purse of 83-year-old Carmen Fontanes, knocking her to the ground and attempting to grab her handbag. Fortunately, bystanders intervened, and the suspect fled on Ninth Street where he tried to steal another purse from a young woman outside St. Thomas Aquinas church.

As NYPD officers caught him with him, he hopped on the northbound tracks on the Ninth Avenue R station and had almost made it to the Union Street station before he tripped and fell onto the third rail, where he instantly died.

What Are Some Common Types of Ladders Used on Construction Sites? (https://goo.gl/J8vJgz)

Platform ladders
These are portable ladders that are self-supporting and nonadjustable in length. They are known for their hinged design which makes them easy to store.

Extension ladders
These ladders are not self-supporting but can be arranged so that their length is adjusted. They feature two or more sections held together by strong brackets or guides.

Combination ladders
These can be used as either stepladders or extension ladders and under certain scenarios, can be used as either a trestle or stairwell ladder.

Articulated ladders
These portable ladders have locking articulated joints that allow them to be used as straight or extension ladders.

Sectional ladders
These are not self-supporting ladders. Their length cannot be adjusted.

Toddlers Survive Alone for Days After Car Wreck Kills Mother (https://goo.gl/PLmAJi)

Two children survived a car wreck in Camden Arkansas after one of them wandered off and was found by officers. They had been without food or water for days.

Three-year-old Kylen Holliman was found with scratches from head to toe. When officers searched the scene of the accident, they found his 25-year-old mother, Lisa Holliman, outside of the overturned vehicle, from which she had been ejected.

They also found his one-year-old brother, who was still in his car seat. No foul play is suspected.

Officers are calling the incident nothing short of a miracle. Had Kylen not decided to exit the car through the sunroof and go for a walk, they may not have survived.

If you've been seriously injured in a car accident or lost a loved one in a car accident that was caused by someone else acting negligently or criminally, you could seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim. A personal injury attorney can help you with your claim. To speak with an experienced attorney, call Frekhtman & Associates today at (212) 222-1111.

Clergy Sex Abuse Has Cost Catholic Church $3 Billion in Settlements (https://goo.gl/db2rwa)

A new grand jury report found credible allegations against 300 Catholic priests accused of sexually abusing over 1,000 children. It is speculated that the reports of many victims were lost or they were too afraid to come forward, making that number closer to the thousands.

Now, those same victims have filed lawsuits against dioceses and religious orders totaling $3 billion in settlements. The Catholic Church has assets including cash, stocks, and land. Nearly 20 Catholic dioceses have filed bankruptcy as a result.

Allegations include groping and molestation but also rape involving boys and girls. In nearly all the cases, the statute of limitations has run out, meaning that criminal charges cannot be filed. Over 100 priests are dead, and many are retired or have been dismissed from priesthood.
