MERRICK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A birthday celebration over the weekend ended with five families grieving. Party goers crashed on the Southern State Parkway early Sunday.
As CBS 2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported, the accident happened on a stretch of roadway that’s been dubbed “blood alley” by some and other names by other local residents.
“The southern snake is what I call it. It’s like this. It’s always turns. If you’re not paying attention, boom, you fly right off the road,” Eric Duran told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “Something has to be done.”
