Decided on April 2, 2012
PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ
The order, insofar as appealed from as limited by the brief, granted plaintiff's cross motion for summary judgment.
ORDERED that the order, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed, without costs.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendant Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (sued herein as MVAIC) appeals, as limited by its brief, from so much of an order as granted plaintiff's cross motion for summary judgment.
MVAIC contends that there is an issue of fact as to whether plaintiff's assignor's injuries were the result of a motor vehicle accident. MVAIC's sole proof in support of its contention consisted of an uncertified copy of a police report, which merely recorded a hearsay statement. Contrary to MVAIC's contention, this showing was insufficient to demonstrate the existence of a triable issue of fact. Accordingly, the order, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed (cf. Matter of Manhattan & Bronx Surface Tr. Operating Auth. (Gholson), 71 AD2d 1004 ).
Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur.
