Charter Bus Driver In Deadly Queens Crash Had Previous Conviction

The charter bus driver involved in this past Monday’s fatal bus crash in Queens should have been prohibited from driving buses in New York due to a previous Operating Under the Influence (OUI) conviction in Connecticut.

Raymond Mong was charged with drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident in a 2015 incident. He, along with 2 others, were tragically killed this past Monday when his speeding tour bus plowed into an MTA bus.

Anyone convicted of leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in injuries is barred in New York from driving a bus for five years.

Questions also have been raised as to how Mong was able to remain employed as a bus driver when he was previously required by the courts to use a breathalizer device to start his private car.

The investigation to the Queens crash is still ongoing and results of a toxicology test on Mong have yet to be released.


Recent Railway Accidents Cited as Need for Sleep Apnea Testing

By AnnDenn (Self-photographed) [Public Domain]
Earlier this week, several congressional officials in both New Jersey and New York asked the US Department of Transportation to reconsider its decision to discontinue testing of train and truck operators for sleep apnea.

The proposed reinstatement stems from recent fatal crashes at the Hoboken Terminal and the Metro-North in the Bronx where both engineers were later diagnosed with sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep. The condition causes drowsiness and fatigue during the day, which can result in loss of concentration and accidents by those operating heavy machinery.

In their letter to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, the senators called the proposed screening rule “a modest, common-sense approach to combating fatigue on our roads and rails.”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been screening pilots for sleep apnea since 2015 and with their call for a reinstatement in testing, congressional officials are seeking to avoid any additional tragic railway incidents in the future.

NJ Accident AttorneyNew Jersey Law Journal Hall of Fame Award

Greenberg Minasian, LLC, is pleased to announce its recent induction into the New Jersey Law Journal’s Hall of Fame for 2015.  The prestigious recognition stems from the firm’s $17 million verdict in 2014 (Baker v. New Jersey Transit).

The award was included as part of the highest and second-highest verdicts or settlements in six different categories.  Greenberg Minasian placed first in the “Public Liability” category, and had the second highest award amount among all the recognized law firms in all categories.

In early 2011, Greenberg Minasian’s client exited a public transit bus in East Orange when the bus driver closed the door on a bag she was carrying.  The bus dragged the client as it departed, crushing her pelvis and causing a cascade of other injuries, including a closed head injury.

The client underwent 12 subsequent surgeries for her injuries, including one that caused her to stop breathing, exacerbating the head injury and leading to a cognitive deficit.  In February, 2014, an eight-member jury awarded GM’s client $17 million for past and future medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering.

The recognition from the New Jersey Law Journal is just one of several recent awards and recognitions Greenberg Minasian has received.  Those include the Top 50 Verdicts of 2014 from The National Law Journal and the 2014 Litigator Award.
