Queens Car Accident Kills Rosedale Teen

Posted on Aug 14, 2011

A 19-year-old passenger of a Dodge Charger was killed in a Queens car accident on Friday July 22, 2011. The crash occurred on 225th Street at N. Conduit Ave. in Springfield Gardens.

According to reports of this fatal New York City accident, 24-year-old Luis Forero was driving a Mitsubishi Montero and tried to pass a Dodge Charger late that Friday night. Mr. Forero did not successfully pass the Montero, however, and crashed into the vehicle. According to police, the impact of the collision sent the Montero into a fence and caused it to flip over and land on its roof before skidding approximately 150 feet.

19-year-old Brian Hemmings of Rosedale was riding in the backseat of the Montero. He was pinned under the vehicle and had to be extricated by the New York Police Department. He was killed in the crash.

Three other people were in the Montero and reportedly escaped this New York City crash with only minor injuries.

Mr. Forero left the scene of the crash but turned himself in to police shortly after the accident.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Brian Hemmings and our best wishes to those who were injured in this crash.
