Déjà vu? Another Queensboro Bridge Crash Claims a Life


Posted on Apr 30, 2011

Recently, we wrote about a fatal accident on the Queensboro Bridge. Now, we are sad to report that another serious crash has occurred with eerie similarities. Specifically, both accidents involved a Volkswagen, they occurred at the same intersection, and they happened at the same time of day.

In the second crash, which occurred on April 6, 2011, the driver was speeding and unlicensed. A 40-year-old woman, Beatriz Rodriguez, was riding in the front seat. She was taken from the accident scene and listed in critical condition with head trauma. She died the next day from her accident injuries.
The driver of the car, Mr. Alexander Palacio, was reported to be in stable condition.

In response to these crashes, the Transportation Department has said that it will add signs reminding people not to exceed to the 30 miles per hour speed limit. The Transportation Department also plans to install rumble strips as a reminder to passengers who are about to leave the roadway.

Some area shop owners remain concerned over the traffic patterns and alleged dangers for motorists and for those who work in their stores.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family of Beatriz Rodriguez following this fatal New York car accident.
