Sept. 27, 2022 By Christian Murray

A 47-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his 1966 Oldsmobile sedan on the Clearview Expressway in Bayside Monday night.

Police received a 911 call at around 9:22 p.m. that there was a collision on the expressway. Officers from the 109 Precinct responded and discovered the victim inside his vintage vehicle with head injuries and body trauma. He was transported by EMS to New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Queens in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision unit determined the vehicle was traveling south bound on the Clearview Expressway, when the victim failed to properly navigate the roadway, possibly due to suffering a medical episode.

The vehicle then veered to the right shoulder, struck a metal light pole, then entered the roadway and continued southbound before veering to the right a second time, striking a second light pole on the shoulder before then striking a tree on the side of the roadway, and coming to a rest.

The investigation remains ongoing.
