Queens crash two car fatal collision
Driver loses control speeding west on Beach Channel Drive and veers into another vehicle, slamming into the passenger’s side on Beach 127th St. in Belle Harbor.
A young man was killed and three others seriously were injured when two cars collided in the Rockaways Wednesday night.
A blue 2005 Nissan 350Z was speeding westbound on Beach Channel Drive in Belle Harbor when it lost control and veered into oncoming traffic at about 11:25 p.m., authorities said.
One dead and three others seriously injured in the accident.
That’s when a gray 2006 Kia Spectra 5 T-boned the Nissan’s passenger’s side near Beach 127th St., officials said.
NYFD had to use “the Jaws of Life” to rip both vehicles open and remove the injured passengers.
Geovanni Balverdy, a passenger in the Nissan, was rushed to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, but did not survive.
The Nissan’s driver, was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
The 29-year-old Kia driver and her passenger, 21, were both taken to Brookdale University Hospital and were listed in stable condition.
Paul Ajlouny, New York car accident lawyer, offers his take on this accident. “Anytime Firefighters use ‘jaws of life’ to free trapped passengers, you know that the outcome will not always be good. Rescue workers that help car accident victims will use a hydraulic tool called the Jaws of Life to cut apart steel to free people trapped inside damaged cars after a bad crash.” says Mr. Ajlouny.
The passenger’s side of the coupe was completely crush inwards from the force of the collision vehicle parts flying and scattering down the road, at least 50 feet away. Twisted metal and glass were scattered throughout the accident site.
