As our 2015 Queens Accident Map shows, auto accidents caused numerous injuries — and multiple fatalities — throughout the year. In one tragic December incident, a 45-year-old man died when his car crashed into a tractor-trailer on the Van Wyck Expressway.
Also in December, a Porsche traveling at a high rate of speed crashed into a parked school bus, killing a young woman on impact. The driver admitted consuming multiple alcoholic drinks at a bar before driving, and police reported his blood-alcohol level at twice the legal limit.
And in May, a woman died and nine people — including six children — were hurt in a three-car crash. The driver of an SUV being used to shuttle children to a school ran a red light, striking a sedan. The impact caused the car to strike a box truck, killing the 53-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the car.
