Keara Rosa, a 27-year-old from Brooklyn, was fatally hit by a truck in New York City on Wednesday, August 5th at round 12:15 as she was standing next to her car. She had pulled over onto the shoulder on the Cross Bronx Expressway near Southern Boulevard when something had gone wrong with her used car. She had purchased the car just two weeks before the crash. As Keara was standing next to her car, a massive truck slammed into it, pinning her between the car and the wall of the expressway. She died at the scene of the crash.
The police reported that the 55-year-old truck driver was driving in the right lane of the 3-lane Bronx Expressway when he swerved to the left to avoid slow traffic ahead of him. In this attempt, he lost control of his truck and hit three other vehicles: a Toyota Corolla driven by a 51-year-old man, a Toyota Camry driven by a 29-year-old woman and a Lexus driven by a 58 year-old woman. After slamming into the three vehicles, the truck swiped the concrete divider in the middle of the highway, then swerving back to the right side, crashing into Keara’s car and killing her. The other drivers were transported to the hospital to be treated for their minor injuries.
The truck driver was not injured. He has not been charged by the police.
