NYPD: 1,310 Pedestrians and Cyclists Injured, 6 Killed in Traffic in November

1:25 PM EST on January 7, 2013

Fourteen people were killed in New York City traffic last November, and 3,977 were injured, according to the latest NYPD crash data report [PDF].

Citywide, at least eight pedestrians were fatally struck by drivers: three in Manhattan; three in Brooklyn; one in Queens; and one in Staten Island. Among the victims were Dante Dominguez, Kwok Fu, Suying Du, Raoul De La Cruz, Jason Williams, and Kyle Larson. No cyclist deaths were reported by NYPD in November.

Of six fatal crashes reported by Streetsblog and other outlets, no motorists were known to have been charged for causing a death. 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 one senior was killed by a driver in November: Kwok Fu, age 82.

Across the city, 1,034 pedestrians and 276 cyclists were reported hurt in collisions with motor vehicles. Per NYPD policy, few if any of these crashes were investigated by trained officers.

Six motorists died in the city in November; 1,284 motorists and 1,383 passengers were injured.

There were 15,682 motor vehicle crashes in the city in November.

NYPD issued 4,657 speeding tickets in November, and 606 citations for failure to yield to a pedestrian. Download November NYPD summons data here.
