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

  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.


  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.
