An 18-year-old Elmhurst woman is dead after the vehicle she was in crashed on the Long Island Expressway during the early hours Thursday morning.

Katherine Lin, who was killed in the crash, was one of two passengers in a 2018 BMW 320i that was traveling at a high rate of speed going westbound on the expressway at around 12:20 a.m.—by the Van Wyck Expressway.

The driver, a 20-year-old man, lost control of the vehicle and suddenly veered into a guardrail, causing the vehicle to overturn. EMS responded and transported the driver to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst in critical but stable condition.

Lin, who was seated behind the driver, was taken by EMS to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst, where she was pronounced deceased. The other passenger, also an 18-year-old female, was transported by EMS to New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Queens in critical but stable condition.

There were no other vehicles involved in the crash and the investigation, which is being conducted by the NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad, remains ongoing.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
