CRIMINAL MISCHIEF —
Police said that they are trying to locate an individual wanted for throwing a trash can through a window in Woodside on June 24.
Shortly after 12:30 a.m., the suspect—who is described as a Hispanic man—approached the Sure Foundation Lutheran Church, located at 64-20 Roosevelt Ave., and threw a trash receptacle through a window.
FATAL COLLISION —
A 28-year-old Woodside man was killed during a vehicle collision in Long Island City on June 24 and a girl who was a passenger in the vehicle was also severely injured, police said.
Just before 6 a.m., police received a call of a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Skillman Avenue and Queens Boulevard.
Upon arrival, officers found Steven Narvaez, who lived on 48th Street in Woodside, unconscious and unresponsive with severe body trauma and a 17-year-old girl with trauma about the body.
EMS pronounced Narvaez dead at the scene and transported the girl to Elmhurst General Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
An investigation by the NYPD’s Highway Unit’s collision investigation squad discovered that a 2013 Toyota Corolla sedan driven by Narvaez was travelling westbound on Skillman Avenue—and approaching Queens Boulevard—at the same time that a 2007 Freightliner tractor was traveling northbound on Queens Boulevard—and approaching the intersection with Skillman Avenue. The sedan struck the truck within the trailer area and came to rest underneath the tractor. The truck operator remained on the scene. There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
