Another car crash at Queens Plaza
From Fox 5:
A car slammed into a store in Long Island City on Wednesday just over one week after a similar incident in the same location.
Two people were seriously injured at around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday when the driver of a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta driving Queens-bound on the lower level of the Queensboro Bridge lost control and crashed into a building at Crescent Street and Queens Plaza, said police.
The 39-year-old driver was arrested at the scene. Charges are pending. EMS officials told FOX 5 News that the driver suffered a partial arm amputation. He was taken Bellevue Hospital in serious condition.
A 40-year-old passenger suffered head trauma, police said. She was taken to New York Cornell Hospital in critical condition.
The outer roadway to the Queensboro Bridge was closed.
