One woman died and another woman and a two-year-old girl were critically injured in a fatal car crash involving at least two cars in Queens, according to reports. The accident occurred around 6 p.m. on Atlantic Avenue and 108th Street in Richmond Hill, Queens.
A 43-year-old woman driving in a white SUV was traveling westbound on Atlantic Avenue when she allegedly ran through a red light at 108th Street, police said. She was struck by a black Kia driven by a 23-year-old woman in between the intersection. The collision caused the white SUV to mount the curb and struck a family of three, including a 52-year-old woman, a 58-year-old woman, and a two-year-old-girl.
The emergency responders rushed the three to Jamaica Hospital. Meena Mahabir, 52, was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 48-year-old woman and the two drivers were listed in stable condition. The two-year-old girl was listed in critical, but stable condition.
