NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey man has been charged in a four-vehicle crash on the Grand Central Parkway in Queens that police said left two people dead and seven others injured.
Authorities say 33-year-old Andrew Shakespeare, of Roselle, was returning from a wedding when he sideswiped a car and lost control of his SUV in Queens early Sunday.
Police say the SUV crossed three lanes and hit another SUV, causing both vehicles to hit a guardrail, cross the parkway and roll over. Shakespeare’s vehicle then hit another SUV.
Shakespeare faces charges including manslaughter, assault and reckless driving. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
Killed were two of Shakespeare’s four passengers, 16-year-old Akeam Grant and 34-year-old Layon Campbell, both of Brooklyn. He and six people in the other vehicles were injured.
