Calendar icon April 28, 2021

A Long Island driver killed in a two-vehicle accident after he ran a red light was identified as Leonor Parra-Nunez, 61. The accident happened in Calverton around 6:14 a.m., on Thursday, April 1.

Parra-Nunez from Coram was operating a 1997 Nissan Maxima northbound on Burman Boulevard when failed to stop at a red light at Route 25. His car was then struck by a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox in Calverton, that was going eastbound, Riverhead Police Det. Michael Schmidt informed. 

The thirty-three-year-old driver of the Chevrolet, identified as Ronaldo Ajcuc-Chemale from Calverton, was treated at the scene and taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Parra-Nunez who was extricated from his car by the Wading River Fire Department was also taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center where he later died from his injuries. The investigation showed that the Long Island driver killed in the crash had failed to stop at the red light. The police are asking any witnesses of the crash to call detectives at 631-727-4500.

One of the most common reasons for accidents is not stopping at the red light. Such accidents lead to hard collisions and severe injuries; it’s not uncommon for drivers and passengers to die in such crashes. If you were involved in a similar accident, where you have crashed a car that didn’t stop at a red light, even though it is clear that you were not at fault, make sure to contact a car accident lawyer as soon as you can. The outcomes of the accidents could be harsh for you as well (injuries, damages), so it’s better to start the legal process with a skilled and experienced attorney.

Your injuries, lost wages and damages, as well as pain and suffering, should also be covered by a compensation claim. Don’t go alone against the insurers. Contact Cellino Law and schedule your free case review with a New York car accident lawyer

Free Case Review




  • 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.


  • My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic job as our attorney. We could not have been more pleased with the work you and your team has done on this case. This past four years or so has been such a roller coaster for our family. We are very pleased and grateful with the result. We have made a good choice by choosing you. Thank you.


  • I just want to let you know that I did receive my settlement check. More importantly, I want to thank you again for all you did for both me and my family. I could not be more pleased with my experience at Cellino Law. From the moment I first spoke with you I felt comfortable - you took a sincere interest in my case, clearly explained the process and effected a quick settlement. From this day forward, when someone asks if I can recommend a good lawyer I will, without hesitation, say "Cellino Law". Thanks again.


  • 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.


  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.


  • I really appreciated your determination and efforts on handling my case. You have done an outstanding job, and I am very satisfied with the outcome of the settlement. Thank you so so much John.
