Astoria, NY (May 01, 2021) – One man sustained fatal injuries on Thursday, April  29th when a car crashed into his Yamaha motorbike and then plowed through the outdoor dining area of Rosatoro, a restaurant in the Astoria area of Queens.

The fatal victim, who has since been identified as 37-year-old Xing Long Lin, a resident of Queens, was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the car, a 60-year-old woman, was transported to Elmhurst Hospital Center.  

 A third person, a 32-year-old woman patronizing the establishment sustained several leg injuries when she was struck by flying debris but is reportedly in stable condition.  

Based on initial information, the accident took place at about 8:00 p.m. when the driver of a 2013 Mercedes-Benz, was driving northbound along 35th Street in the area of Ditmars Boulevard and attempted to bypass a slow-moving vehicle by driving in the bike lane.

Pedestrian Fatalities in Astoria

5.01 Astoria, NY - Xing Long Lin Fatally Injured in 35th Street Accident

During the course of the last few years, several thousand pedestrians have been killed or sustained serious injuries during a pedestrian accident in New York. As reported by state-level government officials, in spite of the fact that less than 10% of car accidents in New York involve pedestrians, they generate the largest numbers of severely injured and fatal victims.

The pedestrian accident rate is at its highest in urban areas. For example, when studying data sets that encompass the whole state, New York City was the region in which nearly 75% of the state’s pedestrian-involved accidents occurred and the site of more than 50% of all pedestrian fatalities. 

After losing a loved one in a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent New York pedestrian accident by no fault of the victim, it may feel like no amount of compensation could make you feel complete again. While it is true that no financial restitution can ever fully make up for your losses, filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties can go a long way toward helping you find some semblance of peace again.
