Deadly Chain Reaction Crash on Staten Island


At least 7 cars were involved in a horrific crash on Staten Island Sunday afternoon, that left a 75 year old man dead and at least 10 other wounded; 3 seriously. Police sources say that a female driver of a sedan started the collision (and she remains in serious condition) but the reason for the crash is still unclear at this time.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the woman got into a minor accident, “before she sped away” northbound on Travis Avenue “at a high rate of speed,” according to a statement from the NYPD issued late Sunday night. At the intersection of Victory Boulevard and Travis Avenue, the woman slammed into a number of vehicles waiting at a red light, police said. Her sedan went airborne and landed in the middle of the intersection, where it was struck by several other vehicles, according to the NYPD. Witnesses suggested to CBS the woman may have had a medical condition and passed out at the wheel, however police could not confirm that Monday morning and are still working to determine exactly what caused the crash.
