Car Crash in New Rochelle, NY
This past Sunday evening, in the New Rochelle, NY metro area, a car crash on the highways and byways was the order of the day. Several passengers were transported to the hospital in the early hours of the morning. The worst of the mishaps is that a 36-year-old Long Island man, Troy Carter, is now dead. He is a father of three, and had been driving the car with his twin boys, Romello and Carmello. Although the crash was relatively minor, the car was traveling at a high rate of speed. As a result, it smashed into a brick retaining wall, causing a cascade of debris.
The vehicle was removed from the scene at approximately 11pm ET. Several people were also taken to the hospital in various stages of recovery. There were a couple of fatalities, though it was a relatively minor snafu. In the aftermath of the incident, New Rochelle Police have released a statement saying they offer their condolences to the families of the deceased. They will be investigating the cause of the crash and are still looking into the circumstances surrounding the accident.
According to the police, the Nissan Altima was wanted by Westchester County police for multiple larceny investigations in Connecticut. It is thought that the Altima may have been involved in a series of crashes, which led to its downfall. Aside from the aforementioned incidents, there were several other crashes on the same stretch of roadway. Another noteworthy accident occurred when a Union Taxi collided with a pedestrian signal light at a sidewalk intersection. While the pedestrian was able to walk off the scene, the driver of the Taxi was not.
There was also an incident on a nearby road when a tractor trailer hit a bus and sloshed over a hundred gallons of liquid onto the roadway. As a result, the city’s roads were slippery enough to cause several accidents. An additional incident happened when a silver 4-door Toyota Camry and a silver colored taxi struck a pedestrian on an adjacent street. Both vehicles were towed to Safeway’s Towing yard. Despite these unfortunate accidents, the smoky streets of New Rochelle were left in better shape than ever before. After the aforementioned calamity, the New Rochelle Police Traffic unit was tasked with investigating the case and determining if the culprits were actually the real deal. On the positive side, the accident is a rare occurrence and has prompted the aforementioned traffic department to take a closer look at their traffic policies. Of course, the incident will not be the last time that the highways of New Rochelle are filled with cars and traffic jams.
