Queens, NY – Grand Central Pky Shut Down, Multiple Victims Injured After Seven-Vehicle Crash

Queens, NY (July 15, 2022) – Multiple people sustained injuries during a pair of multi-vehicle collisions on the Grand Central Parkway on Friday, July 15th in Queens.

The first crash took place in the eastbound lanes near the exit for Jewel Avenue at about 6:00 a.m. when four vehicles collided causing one of the involved cars to strike the center divider and throw detritus across the westbound lanes, leading to a separate accident. 

One piece of flying debris pierced the windshield of an oncoming vehicle.

A total of seven vehicles were involved in the collisions on both sides of the parkway.

A total of four people sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

All lanes of the parkway were closed down between the Long Island Expressway and Kew Gardens as emergency responders aided the injured and crews worked to clear the roadway. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Queens, NY - Grand Central Pky Shut Down, Multiple Victims Injured After Seven-Vehicle Crash

When accidents involving multiple vehicles occur, there are usually multiple victims that sustain serious injuries and heavy damage to their cars. If you were responsible behind the wheel, then you will not be held liable. This means you will be entitled to collect financial compensation for your damages from both your insurance company and the at-fault driver. 

A publication distributed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that the United States has seen an 11% rise in car accidents since 2015. As our country’s population continues to grow by leaps and bounds, the number of inexperienced, angry, new, careless, preoccupied, and reckless drivers on the roadways continues to grow along with it. New Jersey’s overcrowded roadways are just one of the numerous reasons for the elevated rate of motor vehicle crashes.
