Fatal Accident in Queens as Driver Loses Control of Vehicle

Fatal Accident in Queens as Driver Loses Control of Vehicle
Calendar icon December 4, 2020

A speeding driver crashed on the Belt Parkway after losing control of their vehicle. The fatal accident in Queens resulted in the death of the vehicle’s passenger, who had sustained severe injuries.

The twenty-year-old driver crashed into overpass support on the eastbound Belt Parkway near 150th St. The accident took place on the edge of Baisley Pond Park and across from Kennedy Airport at about 11 p.m. on November 29, according to the police. The vehicle flipped over in the crash.

Medics transported the driver and his passenger, a man in his twenties, to Jamaica Hospital, where the passenger died. Police are still establishing the passenger’s identity. The driver is in critical condition. 

Speeding is one of the top reasons for auto accidents in New York. Losing control over the vehicle often leads to the inability to stop on time.  Often speeding leads to rear-end crashes, or colliding with an object. 

If you suffered a car accident, you’ll likely need legal help from a New York car accident attorney. You’ll need to file a compensation claim, but also you’ll need help with the negotiation process. The claim should be high enough to cover your medical fees, lost wages, and other damages you suffered. 

Naturally, you’re stressed and scared after an accident. You have no idea what to do next, how you’ll cover your expenses and how long will it take for your injuries to heal.

  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe

  • I can only say great things about my attorney Allan Silverstein. He is professional, he calls back right away, he keeps me informed, and makes me feel comfortable as this entire ordeal is stressful. I have total confidence in his ability to handle whatever comes his way. He is no nonsense and very good at his job. Thank you Allan... he is a true asset to the team!

  • My experience during the time of negotiations was extremely positive. Josh Sandberg handled my lawsuit with the utmost integrity. He returned all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all my questions. Josh made things less stressful. I would highly recommend Josh and the entire staff at Cellino Law.


  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.


  • Mark Kochanowicz is from far the best attorney you can have. Mark treats you like a friend more than a client. He truly cares and go the extra mile for you and your case, contacts you to update you in regards to your case and keep you informed at all times. Mark represented me twice and settled my cases for way more than I expected. I highly recommend Mark Kochanowicz because he is just the best on what he does!!! Thank you Mark!!!!
