New York Family Devastated by Alleged DWI Crash


Posted on Apr 29, 2011

An alleged drunk driving accident took the life of a 30-year-old mother and critically injured a 21-year-old man on Saturday April 7, 2011. The one-car crash occurred around 5 a.m. on the Belt Parkway near Flatbush Avenue at Marine Park.

Officials say that 34-year-old Kareem DuPass was driving a Ford Explorer when he hit a guardrail and the SUV flipped over. His girlfriend, the mother of one of his children, 30-year-old Amanda Marty, was in the front seat and his brother, 21-year-old Jason DuPass, was in the backseat.

Amanda and Jason were taken to Brookdale University Hospital. Amanda died at the hospital and Jason was in a coma on the night of the accident.

Kareem DuPass has had several charges filed against him including manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, DWI, reckless driving and speeding.

Ms. Marty is survived by her boyfriend, Kareem DuPass, his 16-year-old son and the couple's 12-year-old son.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Amanda Marty following this tragic New York car accident and we extend our best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Jason DuPass.
