Over A Dozen Injured As Limo Crashes Into Queens Market Saturday

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An accident involving a funeral procession left 16 people injured, and at least one critically Saturday.

A limousine carrying mourners crashed into the Mega Mini Market on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in Springfield Gardens, after being cut off by a minivan.

“I just saw the big limousine came inside,” owner Sunny Singh told 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten.

Witnesses say the van was trying to pass through the funeral procession when it hit an SUV filled with mourners. The limo swerved to avoid the crash and slammed into the market.

Owner Sunny Singh’s wife was hit by the limo.

“The car came and went through one wall, then through the other wall, two walls. It came inside the store and she was over there by the stairs, cleaning,” Singh said.

Workers boarded up the wall after the crash.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    At the corner of Calaveras and N. Park Victoria in Milpitas California two corrupt DEA allmost caused the death of an elderly lady while they where harrassing a suspect.
    The elderly lady was crossing the street about 15 yards ahead of the suspect’s car that was going west bound on Calaveras after having just pulled out of the Shell station. One of the DEA in the bus stop near the Shell station tried to gain the attention of the suspect thereby almost causing the car to hit the elderly lady. The other DEA was at the Shell station.
    They have also recently, on several occasions, entered my home while I was not there so that they can get better access to my vehicle and loosen steering linkages, remove wheel weights, tamper with breaks, tamper with transmission linkages, etc… Every time I detect that they have entered my home, my dog looks like he is not feeling well. Why take my insolence out on a dog?
    They are also shooting BB guns at my car while driving. One instance they shot a BB gun at my car in a very busy intersection of highways 680&101 while I was traveling 55+ mph.

    What idiot would cut off a funeral procession? I hope that they catch the person who did this and make them responsibile for this accident and teach them patience

    New York City drivers have no respect for the dead, only here do they cut off processions, other states the drivers pull aside and allow the processions to flow without incident….shame on you.
