According to authorities on Monday, a man’s inebriated joy ride on the Long Island Expressway resulted in a scene of mayhem that left three other individuals in Queens fighting for their lives and threw a young woman to her death. On Sunday, at around 4:30 in the morning, Reginald Nash, who was 24 years old at the time, was heading east on the freeway via Sunnyside in his 2021 Honda Accord. The cops claim that he struck a crash cushion at the Greenpoint Avenue overpass.
The hit sent Nash’s sedan into a wild spin, according to the police, and caused it to collide with another man’s 2018 Toyota Rav 4, which after the accident crashed into a 2021 Kia Telluride. The altercation appears to have resulted in the 23-year-old Long Island resident Cameron Mency being thrown from the vehicle. Authorities from the police department claim that Mency was one of Nash’s four passengers. Paramedics transported Mency to Bellevue Hospital on the way. The cops stated that there was no way to save her.
The three other passengers—two of whom were women, ages 22 and 36—were taken to Elmhurst Hospital by the authorities, where they remain in critical condition. The three car drivers were unharmed in the crash, according to the police. Nash, who lives in Roosevelt, Long Island, about a mile from Mency’s house, was reportedly taken into custody by the police and charged with both driving while intoxicated and vehicular manslaughter.
