A 23-year-old woman was killed in a dramatic crash in Staten Island, a male body was found inside a burned car in Queens, and four men were injured in shooting and stabbing incidents in Manhattan and The Bronx, during another violent early weekend night around NYC.
A car fire in Queens reveals a body.
An unidentified individual was found burned to death after a mysterious car fire in Queens. The body was found after police and FDNY responded to a report at the intersection of Mott Avenue and Bay 25th Street in Far Rockaway shortly before 2:40 a.m.
Once FDNY extinguished the fire, the body of the unidentified individual was discovered in the vehicle’s driver’s seat. The city medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death. The make of the car was not released at this time, nor was there any further information about the victim.
Woman killed in a single car crash in Staten Island.
Later, around 4:45 a.m., a 23-year-old woman was killed in a dramatic single-car crash on Staten Island that left the vehicle cut in two lengthwise. The 30-year-old driver was arrested after the deadly episode, police said.
The impact left a dramatic scene bloody and littered with debris in front of 2545 Hylan Blvd. in the New Dorp neighborhood, the New York Post described. The unidentified victim died from injuries she sustained after being thrown from the passenger seat of the white Dodge sedan.
The driver was apparently traveling southbound when, for unspecified reasons, he lost control of the vehicle and struck a “barrier.” “It appears the vehicle struck a light pole,” said an NYPD spokesperson.
Subway passenger killed in Manhattan.
In addition, a 34-year-old passenger was shot twice during an argument aboard a subway train in Manhattan early this morning, hours after Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul proclaimed that crime had dropped in the past three months on New York’s chaotic subway.
An altercation in The Bronx ends up with a violent stabbing.
Also, three people were stabbed early this morning during an altercation in The Bronx around 6:10 a.m. The attack occurred during a possible “alcohol-related” episode off Allerton Avenue and Olinville Avenue in Allerton, police said.
One victim was stabbed in the leg, another in the chest, and a third in the arm. Authorities reported that the trio was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.
