The woman and the Jeep’s driver, a 40-year-old man, were also taken to Staten Island University Hospital North and listed in stable condition, according to police.

A pair of eye glasses sat on the ground outside the Jeep, amid the twisted plastic and shattered glass that was scattered around the area.

It’s  been reported by police that expected charges would be filed against the driver of the Jeep.

“It’s  obvious due to the statement by the police  that charges will be filed indicates that the driver of the SUV was impaired at the time.” states New York car accident lawyer Paul Ajlouny.

“This is Driving while under the influence is a recurring problem in our society today. Impaired  drivers are a danger to other drivers, passengers and pedestrians.  This is a selfish and reckless act by the SUV driver in this tragic incident.  It’s  almost impossible that two moving vehicle going less than 25 mph on a clear day with no traffic are going to collide UNLESS alcohol is involved.

The repeated message of  **Don’t Drink And Drive**  just doesn’t seem to work.  Innocent lives are lost due to the reckless act of on very stupid person. I am an advocate of  prison time in a circumstance like this.” suggests Mr. Ajlouny.

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.

el_marie26 What a shame that you knew better and the rules of the road and your friend couldn’t… And, you just recently put this up…. Such a shame to lose a life not worth losing during a new year. You were so young and had your whole precious life to live. I didn’t personally know you or your family but I am too familiar to tragedies as such for many years now. May your family find it in their hearts to forgive and may God grant them the strength they need to heal and continue on in life in a positive light. May you rest in the sweetest of peace. I will pray for your family and friends.
RIP Geovanni Balverdy

Stop and think; before you end up making making a decision that could end your whole life.
