Bronx, N.Y. – Man Dies After Attempting to Help Crash Victim on Cross Bronx Expressway

Bronx, N.Y. (February 12, 2019) – A man has died after trying to help a woman who was injured in a crash on the Cross Bronx Expressway early Monday morning. The deadly New York pedestrian accident occurred around 1:15 a.m. and involved multiple vehicles.

The victim, 28-year-old Jaquan Cesar, came upon a two-car fender bender while on the Expressway and decided to stop and help one of the women involved in the accident. Cesar was a dialysis technician and had training in CPR, which is what officials and family think prompted him to stop and help.

The two-vehicle fender bender involved a 2015 Mercedes Benz, driven by a 24-year-old woman, which had rear-ended a 2012 GMC in the eastbound lanes. Cesar had gotten out of his car to help the woman in the Mercedes. At this point, a 2013 BMW, driven by a 28-year-old man, rear-ended the Mercedes, which caused Caser to be launched over a concrete barrier and onto the westbound traffic side. After landing, a vehicle hit Cesar and then left the scene. Police declared Cesar dead at the scene.

Four other people were injured in this accident, including a 22-year old driver who was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
