Police Say High-Speed Racing May have Cause LIE Crash that Killed Three

Filed September 2nd, 2016 F.A. Kelley

Police say that a crash on the Long Island Expressway that killed three people and injured 11 others may have caused by a high-speed race.

The crash occurred in the early morning hours of Wednesday, August 31, on the Long Island Expressway in Maspeth, Queens, the New York Post reports. Two of those killed were National Guardsmen who were best friends.

At about 4:20 a.m., the driver of a speeding 2010 Infiniti sedan lost control as tried to exit at Maurice Avenue, police said. The car, which was carrying five people, hit a divider and spilt in half. The 25-year-old driver, an Army National Guard sergeant from Oakland Gardens, Queens, a backseat passenger, also a guardsman, and a 24-year-old woman from Franklin Square, Long Island were thrown from the car and declared dead at the scene.

A 2012 Acura TL also traveling east struck the front half of the Infiniti in the left lane, the Post reports. Police say that seconds after the first crash, a dump truck approaching the crash scene at high speed could not stop in time and crashed into five other vehicles that had stopped behind the crash, police say.

No one was seriously injured in the second impact, though one woman went into cardiac arrest. The Acura driver, 27, who suffered minor injuries, ­refused medical attention at the scene. Other survivors were taken to Elmhurst and Queens General hospitals.

A mechanic working nearby called 911 ­after hearing the impacts. “It was a horrible scene,” Carlos Rocha said.

Accident investigators believe the ­Infiniti and the Acura may have been involved in a race, according to the Post. Michael Fabre, the Infiniti driver, and his friends were returning home after a friend’s birthday celebration in Manhattan when the accident occurred. Fabre and the other guardsman, Giovanny Sanchez, were “inseparable,” ­relatives said. Fabre had recently asked his girlfriend’s father for her hand in marriage and was reportedly planning to propose in December.

Christina Formato, the third fatality in the crash had worked as a secretary for the Nassau County Police Department for two years and was planning to start graduate school, the Post reports.

After the crash, traffic was backed up for miles. The lower-level eastbound lanes of the LIE between the 48th Street and Maurice Avenue exits were closed for four hours. The Queens Midtown Tunnel and the connection from the Brooklyn Queens Expressway to the LIE also were also shut down.
