Woman Killed After Car Strikes Barrier Near Williamsburg Bridge

A woman was ejected from a speeding car after the driver, who was allegedly drunk, lost control and crashed into a barrier near the Williamsburg Bridge on the morning of May 13th.

The 23-year-old woman hit a metal divider on the passenger’s side when she was making a turn near the ramp to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, ejecting the backseat passenger. The victim landed on the roadway as the car spun out of control into oncoming traffic. The victim died at the scene.

The driver then pulled the car off of the highway and parked on Roebling and South Fourth Streets. The driver, along with three other passengers, were all taken to Bellevue Hospital where they are in stable condition. Charges against the driver are pending.
