Thirteen vulnerable users were killed on city streets in June, according to the latest NYPD crash data report [PDF].

City-wide, 10 pedestrians and three cyclists were fatally struck by drivers: one pedestrian and one cyclist in Manhattan; two pedestrians in the Bronx; four pedestrians and one cyclist in Brooklyn; and three pedestrians and one cyclist in Queens. Among the victims were William Boney, Frankie Hernandez, Kevin Rodriguez, Emma Blumstein, Justin Murray, Tskaka Cooke and Ebrahim Kebe.

Of seven fatal crashes reported by Streetsblog and other outlets, two motorists were known to have been charged for causing a death. The girlfriend of Frankie Hernandez was charged with manslaughter for allegedly running him over intentionally; the driver accused of killing William Boney was charged with manslaughter and driving while intoxicated. Historically, nearly half of motorists who kill a New York City pedestrian or cyclist do not receive so much as a citation for careless driving.

At least two children were killed by motorists in June: Kevin Rodriguez, age 3, and Ebrahim Kebe, 4.

Across the city, 954 pedestrians and 377 cyclists were hurt in collisions with motor vehicles. Per NYPD policy, few if any of these crashes were investigated by trained officers.

Eleven motorists and five passengers died in the city in June; 1,664 and 1,924 were injured, respectively.

There were 18,186 motor vehicle crashes in the city in June. After the jump: contributing factors for crashes resulting in injury and death.
