It was the tragic accident that occurred on the Bronx River Parkway that took the lives of 7 individuals, changing one family’s life forever. And one year ago we introduced you to two men who created the Cross Bronx Initiative, a campaign to create a cleaner and safer cross Bronx. Letters were sent to the state department of transportation highlighting conditions on the parkway as well as the Sheridan and Cross Bronx. After this recent tragedy, both William Rivera and Luis Sepulveda are doubling their efforts.
