    Two dead after fiery Long Island Expressway wreck in Queens

    Cops say the driver and passenger in the vehicle, both men in their 30s, were killed when their vehicle went over a guardrail while trying to exit the Long Island Expressway near College Point Blvd. in Queens.

    Two men in their 30s were killed when their vehicle flipped over a guardrail while trying to exit the Long Island Expressway and slammed into a stanchion near College Point Blvd., cops said.

    A 30-year-old Queens man speeding at over 100 mph on the Long Island Expressway died along with his passenger in a fiery crash early Saturday, police said.

    The driver, whose name was not immediately released, was racing west in the center lane of the LIE when he lost control of his 2004 Subaru Impreza trying to switch into the left lane near Flushing Meadows Park about 12:35 a.m., police said.

    After striking the center median he veered back across three lanes, struck a guardrail and flipped his vehicle, slamming into a cement pillar supporting the elevated Van Wyck Expressway, cops said.

    The car burst into flames and it took firefighters half an hour to extinguish the blaze and extract the passengers from the crumpled wreckage.

    Sports drinks, a basketball and a baseball mitt were strewn among the car’s shattered wreckage.



    The crash occurred around 12:30 a.m., cops said.

    The driver and his passenger, a 30-year-old Brooklyn man, were taken to Elmhurst Hospital where they both died minutes after arriving, officials said.

    Investigators determined the driver was going 107 mph in a 50 mph zone when he lost control, police said.
    No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

    We agree. The only reason that caused this was speed.

    You have to know your limits, the limits of your vehicle and your tires had better be in tip top shape if you're going to do something stupid like this.
