10-Year-Old Tourist Killed in Queens Crash

Posted on Sep 06, 2011

A 10-year-old Australian girl was killed in a New York City car accident on what was believed to be her last day in the United States before returning home. Sabrina Mangos was a passenger in a minivan that was traveling in Astoria, Queens on the evening of Saturday, August 6. At the intersection of 34th Avenue and 31st Street, the minivan collided with a Nissan Sentra.

The minivan flipped on its side after the collision. Seven people, including four adults and three children, were in the minivan. Emergency responders had to remove the injured people from the wreckage of the vehicle. Witnesses report that when the van was put in an upright position, Sabrina was on the street.

She was brought to Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens where she died.

The other six passengers were all taken by ambulance to Mount Sinai or to Elmhurst Hospital Center and all are expected to survive. The driver of the Nissan Sentra, a 55-year-old male, was walking and alert at the accident scene.

The cause of this New York City car accident remains under investigation.

We extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Sabrina Mangos following their tragic loss.
