Two drivers involved in a head-on collision on the Long Island Expressway remain in critical condition in a Flushing hospital’s intensive care unit, authorities told a New York Injury Lawyer.
A 64-year-old Greenlawn resident is still in a medically induced coma after his airport shuttle van was hit head-on by a Mercedes-Benz driven by a 30-year-old man from Hempstead. The driver of the Mercedes was driving the wrong way, a spokeswoman for the New York City Police Department told a New York Injury Lawyer. There were no passengers in the shuttle at the time.
The Greenlawn man is in critical condition with bruised lungs, and a broken rib cage, pelvis, and right leg, his son-in-law told a New York Injury Lawyer. “He’s fighting for his life right now,” the son-in-law said.
The 30-year-old man from Hempstead was also taken to the same hospital, police told a New York Injury Lawyer. He has been charged with vehicular assault, drunken driving, and reckless endangerment. He has also been placed under police guard. There are no further updates on his condition. The son-in-law said his father-in-law had his two daughters at his side before being sedated. “He tapped his heart to indicate he loved them,” said the son-in-law.
