Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement after the tragic death of a pedestrian who was fatally hit by a vehicle in front of 1150 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

                “My heart is broken once again after another tragic pedestrian fatality in Brooklyn. My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victim and with our entire community during this time.

                 “However, as I have said previously, words of sympathy are not enough. While not all the facts are yet public and the NYPD is still investigating, we must keep advocating for additional safety measures.  To this end, I will continue working across levels of government to make our streets safer.”
