Alberto Plasencia, 27, of Yonkers is charged with murder in the second degree in connection with the April 24, 2004, death of Maria McSweeney.
Marie McSweeney was driving on the Sprain Parkway when someone hurled a chunk of asphalt from an overpass in the middle of the afternoon.
The incident is believed to be the first since ‘Low Bridge – No Truck’ warnings were painted on the roadway surface, reigniting the debate over whether more needs to be done to keep trucks off of parkways.
“It was an aggressive attack. It was unwarranted,” said Captain Ken Ehrenberg of Paramus Police.
Jawaad Abdur-Rahman was driving his girlfriend’s son to school and when his car had some mechanical problems, prompting him to get out on the Bruckner Expressway between the Triborough Bridge and Sheridan Expressway.
