Yonkers police face lawsuits over 2020 car crash that killed 4 teens

Yonkers and its police department are being sued over the devastating car crash that killed four city teenagers only a few days before Christmas in 2020.

At least three families of the Yonkers teenagers whose lives were cut short are blaming Yonkers police for the horrific crash that occurred when Mount Vernon resident Devon Haywood’s car struck the 2006 Nissan the four young men were in. 

The 18-year-olds killed were Brandon Sierra, Randy Brisbane, Tamari Watkins and Anthony Cruz. They had just graduated from Saunders Trades and Technical High School the previous spring.

Their sudden deaths devastated the city. 

In separate legal actions filed in state Supreme Court this month, the three plaintiffs argue Yonkers police mishandled the pursuit of Haywood, who was attempting to evade officers on Riverdale Avenue after they tried pulling him over for erratic driving. 

Haywood, 36, also died in the Dec. 22, 2020 crash. 

The Journal News has confirmed the families of Watkins, Cruz and Sierra have filed legal actions.
