Passenger killed, 2 others injured when car slams into guardrail in Queens


CAMBRIA HEIGHTS, QUEENS, NY – Police said a single-vehicle car accident in Queens last week left a passenger dead and two other people injured, according to a report in The Daily News.

The incident happened early Friday on the Cross Island Parkway near the exit for Linden Boulevard in Cambria Heights. Police said a 26-year-old woman was driving a 2017 Mercedes-Benz south on the roadway at about 3 a.m. and crashed into a guardrail, causing the vehicle to overturn. Investigators said the driver was apparently speeding at the time.
