A fatal, multiple-car smash-up in Queens leaves at least one dead early Saturday. Police said the victim, a Sanitation Department worker, ended up killed; after being thrown out of his speedy Toyota Camry. The incident occurred in one of the busiest streets in Queens, involving several vehicles.
According to the details, Dominick Bunch lost his life when his out-of-control Toyota Camry slammed into several other cars. Reports suggest that following the collision the poor 24-year-old victim whom police suspect may have been drinking; was ejected through the windshield of his car.
Police confirmed that after being ejected, Bunch skidded lifelessly while in Woodhaven’s Atlantic Avenue just before 3 a.m. At the time of accident, there were several vehicles careering down the said busy street, police said by adding that the spot is pretty favourite among the speedsters.
While the victim’s corpse was being removed from the crumpled Camry by investigators hours later, the dead man’s family and friends would be seen around, weeping and mourning his tragic death. Meanwhile, Bunch was not alone in the car, said police and added that at least two of his fellow passengers also ended up injured.
A source said the injury victims were expected to survive. Horrified witnesses informed that the accident occurred close to the corner of Crescent St. at Brooklyn and Queens’ border. A probationary Sanitation worker Bunch, first struck another parked vehicle and the impact sent his vehicle into a spin.
Following that, the roaring Camry kept on speeding through a red light before slamming into a livery cab that was crossing 87th St. Bunch would be seen hurtling onto the street after sending the first vehicle, a sedan into the air, leaving it flipped over.
Police believed that Bunch was not wearing a seatbelt and that he may have been drinking before the crash. However, it appears that he was not tested for the blood alcohol content.
