NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Andrew Siff's August 5, 2001 coverage as a Brooklyn family tried to cope with the loss of four loved ones after they were struck by an off-duty NYPD officer who was intoxicated behind the wheel.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: In the year after the accident, the victims' family filed a lawsuit against the city and the Police Benevolent Association. They settled for $1.5 million in 2006. Joseph Gray was ultimately convicted on four counts of second degree manslaughter. He served 10 years in prison and was released this year.
