As stated by a resident of that area:
Another person killed at this awful intersection where my in-laws live. I’ve seen numerous accidents at the intersection on 115ave and 130th st because these dyslexic ghetto bastards blow through the stop sign all the time. How many more people have to die before they finally put a light at the intersection.
Well, since this is the Wild Wild West of Queens and the Dirty Southeast Queens, probably at least a 1000 people will have to die before they put up a light, so not in our lifetime. But then maybe NEVER since this is a community of color and the powers that be do not care about them as evident by the poor quality of life in these areas and NOT ONE elected official, including the mayor is doing a damn thing about this. AND remember these areas are Democrats and many Democrat elected officials are people of color.
Just like not much will be done about large dangerous trucks driving in residential and heavily pedestrian areas of Jamaica where you can lose your legs by getting them crushed by a dangerous tractor trailer.
THIS CITY SUCKS and QUEENS SUCKS EVEN MORE………………….yes, time to head to better pastures, because it “ain’t gettin better here folks”. And so my countdown begins.
Speeding Hit & Run Driver Kills Mother, Critically Injures 9-Year-Old Daughter In Queens
A woman is dead and her 9-year-old daughter is in critical condition after an allegedly speeding driver slammed into their car in Queens yesterday. The impact, which a witness said “sounded like a bomb going off,” ejected the mother and daughter through the back window of their Toyota.
The crash occurred around 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon, near 115th Avenue and 130th Street in South Ozone Park. Police say that the driver of a 2002 BMW X5 was headed west on 115th Avenue when he sped through a stop sign at 130th Street.
The driver hit a 2010 Toyota Corolla, which was going north on 130th Street, and then hit three other parked vehicles before stopping, according to the NYPD. The woman and daughter, who were sitting in the rear seats of the Toyota, flew out the back window.
A witness said to WCBS 2, “The mother went pinned under the driver’s side tire and the daughter went between the two trees.”
The BMW driver fled on foot, but not before a witness spotted him. V.J. Gajai told the Post that the driver seemed to be drunk, as was his passenger, “Just the way he was talking, the way he was moving, [I could tell] they were drunk. [The driver] was slurring his words.”
Here’s footage of the BMW speeding a block before the crash scene:
The driver abandoned his passenger, a 46-year-old male, who was taken to the hospital.
The woman who died was identified as Zaalika Rasool of Ozone Park. Her husband who was driving, and a 71-year-old man in the front passenger seat suffered minor injuries. Gajai told the Daily News, “It was the worst thing I’ve seen. We knew she was gone and then we saw the daughter lying on the sidewalk and she wasn’t moving either.”
