Staten Island Two-Vehicle Crash Injures Multiple People, Including Pregnant Woman
Staten Island, NY – Just after 4:00 in the afternoon of June 13, police responded to a report regarding a two-vehicle collision near the intersection of Hylan Boulevard and Cornelia Avenue on Staten Island. As soon as NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad arrived at the accident scene, four people were hurt and a pregnant woman was seriously injured. She was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital, where she had to undergo an emergency Caesarean operation. Unfortunately, the baby succumbed to injuries and died.
Allegedly, a 21-year-old male driver of a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee zooming northbound lost control of the vehicle and slammed head-on into a 2018 Nissan Rogue occupied by a 26-year-old male driver and a 28-year-old female passenger. The Jeep operator was arrested and charged with multiple counts of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and driving without a license.
