Six Hurt in Harlem as Van Hits Scaffold

On March 7, 2009, an out-of-control van jumped a curb and barreled into a scaffold. The scaffold collapsed, injuring several pedestrians. Police officers, an ambulance and members of the fire department raced to the scene, finding 29 year-old Kevin Bouley, the most seriously injured of the pedestrians, buried under a rain of steel pipes and wood. Mr. Bouley, a Harlem resident and a small business owner, was walking towards a nearby subway station when this tragic accident occurred.
