Passenger Injured In Queens Car Accident on the Clearview Expressway

QUEENS, NEW YORK (October 23, 2022) – One person was critically injured in a Queens high speed car accident involving a guardrail on the Clearview Expressway.

New York City police officials are saying that the accident took place around 2:18 a.m. on Sunday. A vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crashed into a guardrail and a tree on the right shoulder.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim. The driver of the vehicle died and a passenger was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.

Police said that speed was a suspected factor in the crash. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Queens Car Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year in accidents involving speeding drivers. Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code 1180, “No person shall drive a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

If a driver is involved in a car accident while speeding, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that can come with an accident. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
