In the early morning hours of March 18, 2015, a New Jersey police officer — off duty at the time — drove the wrong way on the West Shore Expressway in Staten Island. His vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer, killing two of his passengers.
Just hours before the tragic crash that took the lives of another police officer and a civilian riding in the ill-fated vehicle, the driver — Officer Pedro Abad Jr. — posted a photo on social media of glasses filled with liquor.
In another Staten Island fatal car accident, a 19-year-old woman lost her life when the vehicle in which she was riding crashed into a pole in July 2015. Another woman in the car suffered critical injuries. The driver, who apparently lost control of the vehicle, and another passenger were able to climb out safely.
In June 2015, a 57-year-old man was sitting on a Staten Island park bench at Victory Boulevard and Bay Street when a car hit and killed him following a crash that sent an SUV flying onto the sidewalk. The driver of the SUV was charged with driving while ability impaired.
