Two people were killed, and four more were injured, in a crash on the Grand Central Parkway in Queens early Saturday.
Hansraj Madosh, 20, was charged with two counts of manslaughter, one count of felony assault, two counts of criminally negligent homicide, and driving while ability impaired, and also ticketed for speeding and illegal speed, police said. He was believed to be intoxicated.
As CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported, the crash happened just before 4 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the parkway about a quarter mile west of Exit 19, in Jamaica Estates, Queens.
The ferocious crash hit with so much force that the front end of the four-door Honda Civic was let about 100 feet from where the car landed. Madosh was taken into custody later Saturday morning with minor injuries.
But three people sitting in the back of the car were ejected. Two – a young man identified as Anil Persaud, 18, and young woman identified as Meera Dukharan, 17 – were pronounced dead at the scene. A third was taken to New York Hospital Queens in serious condition.
Both of the dead were ejected from the back seat and wound up on either side of the center divider.
The driver and the passengers were teenagers, 1010 WINS reported. The driver was drunk and was reportedly speeding before losing control of the car and hitting a guardrail.
