New York Car Accident Proves Fatal for Parsippany Mom, 3 Kids Survive
Posted on Sep 12, 2012
Three little girls struggle to survive after their mother was killed in a car accident on Route 9 last week.
The accident took place in the early morning hours of Sunday, August 19. Kim Lynn of Parsippany was driving on Route 9 west in Marlborough, New York, with her daughters Cassie, Meagan, and Jordan when their vehicle was struck by a 2003 Jeep Liberty.
According to witnesses, Cassie, 12, was trapped in the vehicle with her mother. Her twin 8-year-old sisters unfastened their seat belts and tried to rouse their unconscious mother. When emergency responders arrived on the scene, the three girls tried to refuse treatment, insisting the medical staff attend to their mother first.
Forty-one-year-old Kim Lynn was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both Meagan and Jordan Lynn were treated for non-critical injuries at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York. Cassie Lynn underwent a six-hour surgery on Wednesday to repair her fractured pelvis, broken legs, and a broken arm. She is recovering at the Westchester Medical Center.
Marlborough Police Chief Gerald Cocozza has said that no charges are pending against the other driver, Alexander Rijo-Mendez, and there is no word on whether charges will be filed.
Bob Lynn, who lives in Ringwood, said that funeral services for his ex-wife will not be held until Cassie is out of the hospital.
Kim Lynn was had been a pediatric nurse at BAYADA Home Health Care for 15 years. She served in the Air Force and was nationally recognized in March 2011 for her work educating nurses and developing programs for home health care.
