Calendar icon November 16, 2020

A woman from Selden was killed and a four-year-old boy ended up injured in a Long Island Expressway collision. The accident happened on the morning of November 2 around 8:15 a.m., Suffolk police informed.

Thirty-five-year-old Michelle Carpenter was operating a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix going westbound on the expressway near Exit 53 when she turned to avoid stopped traffic. The driver lost control of the car, which swerved off the highway, hit a tree, and flipped over in the woods.

Carpenter was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore where doctors pronounced her dead. The boy had minor injuries and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip. The police informed that the child was sitting in the back seat.  

The vehicle was taken for a safety check. Detectives are asking anyone with information about the collision to call the Fourth Squad at 631-854-8452.

Suffering a car wreck or losing a loved one in an accident is never easy. Such tragedies are changing people’s lives forever. If you were injured in a car accident, you need to seek legal help from a car accident attorney. They would help you immensely especially with gathering evidence, filing for a compensation claim, and negotiating with the insurance company.

The insurance company will work hard to offer a lower settlement or no settlement at all. Your lawyer won’t accept any offer that is low and unsuitable to cover your medical treatments, lost wages, and other expenses. Your focus should be on your recovery and nothing else.

  • Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!


  • 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.


  • 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 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.
