Speeding Biker Killed After Crashing Into a Cement Pillar in Queens
Calendar icon November 13, 2020

A speeding biker killed after crashing into a cement pillar on a Queens street was identified as Daniel Hernandez, 25. The crash occurred near 50th Avenue about 9 p.m. on November 1, the police informed. The pillar holds the Brooklyn Queens Expressway overpass and is at the end of Calvary Cemetery. 

Hernandez, who was living in Ridgewood, Queens, was rushing east on Laurel Hill Boulevard in Sunnyside. He was riding a blue 2007 Yamaha. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, but still ended with traumatic bodily injuries and died at the scene. 

The state of New York is strict about motorcyclists wearing helmets. However, even the helmet is not a warranty for the life of the rider. Motorcyclists aren’t protected so even a small impact can be fatal for them. 

The number of motorcycle accidents is almost as high as that of car accidents. Speeding, negligence, splitting lanes, road bumps, open doors of cars are only a few of the many factors that contribute to these types of collisions. Drivers of vehicles are often unable to spot motorcyclists due to their size. When drivers make a left turn, they usually look for other large vehicles and fail to notice an approaching motorcycle.

If you’re a motorcyclist and end up in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, you can seek a claim for your injuries and damages. To do this, consult with a New York motorcycle accident attorney. They would review your case and help you collect evidence, file the claim, and negotiate with the insurance company (in case they offer a low settlement). 

If you need legal help for such matters, allow our team at Cellino Law to review your case and help you file the claim. Our mission is to help you collect your settlement.

Free Case Review




  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • 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.


  • Thank you for your time, effort, and hard work on my case. I appreciate your expertise and compassion. I never experienced what I went through and I would have been completely lost without you.


  • 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.


  • I highly recommend Cellino Law to anyone involved in a car crash. I worked with Michael Lovecchio, and had a wonderful experience given the circumstances. He was very attentive, and got the best possible outcome I could have wanted.


  • We want to send a big "Thank you" from the both of us. We know you both fought for us and did a great job with our case. You did it in a timely manner and we appreciate it.
