EMS (Michael Dorgan, Queens Post)

A 47-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his 1966 Oldsmobile sedan on the Clearview Expressway in Bayside Monday night.

Police received a 911 call at around 9:22 p.m. that there was a collision on the expressway. Officers from the 109 Precinct responded and discovered the victim inside his vintage vehicle with head injuries and body trauma. He was transported by EMS to New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Queens in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision unit determined the vehicle was traveling south bound on the Clearview Expressway, when the victim failed to properly navigate the roadway, possibly due to suffering a medical episode.

The vehicle then veered to the right shoulder, struck a metal light pole, then entered the roadway and continued southbound before veering to the right a second time, striking a second light pole on the shoulder before then striking a tree on the side of the roadway, and coming to a rest.

The investigation 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.
