A 37-year-old is dead and several other people are injured after a wrong-way crash in Queens last month. The crash occurred around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 15 on the service road to the Long Island Expressway.

Accident reports indicate that a Chrysler Sebring was travelling the wrong way on the service road and crashed head-on into a livery cab. The driver of the Sebring reportedly left the scene of the accident on foot.

The 37-year-old victim was a passenger in the livery cab. The victim and the driver of the livery cab were taken to Elmhurst General Hospital. The victim was declared dead on arrival and the driver's condition was unknown. A passenger from the Sebring was also taken to Elmhurt General Hospital and reported to be in stable condition. The identities of the drivers and passengers have not yet been released to the media.

The service road in Maspeth was shut down as police investigated this fatal New York City accident.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family of the person who died in this crash, and we wish the other victims of this New York City head-on collision a fast and complete recovery.
